Pictured: The thrush feeding it's chicks taken on the 30th May when they were 13 days old.
It was thrush hour at a busy road junction when a mother bird chose to build her nest in this set of traffic lights. The mistle thrush picked the unlikely location on a busy ring road for a home for her eggs, where she spent weeks nurturing them until they hatched.
The protective mother continued to care for her young by bringing them worms to eat and keeping predators at bay until the three fledglings were strong enough to flee their nest in Beeston, Leeds. The striking sight caught the attention of thousands of passing pedestrians and motorists, as well as photographer Paul Green, who captured these intimate pictures. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
