Coronavirus: Robins find nesting space in lockdown cars
A man was surprised to discover robins nesting in his cars which had been used less frequently during the lockdown.
Charlie Talmadge, of Reepham, Norfolk, said he first became aware of a nest behind the grill of his Volvo when two robins were staring at him "intently".
He said unknowingly he had been to the shops with the chicks in tow, but they were unharmed and eventually fledged.
Mr Talmadge, 60, has since discovered a second nest in the wheel arch of his wife's car.
"I couldn't believe it happened the first time but to do both of the cars is quite unusual," he said.
Mr Talmadge said they currently cannot move the Range Rover with the robin's nest there.
"Every time you look at 'mother robin', she's having none of it," he said.
"Hopefully this second lot will come through."
