A Blackbird has made its nest in a JCB! Duncan Booth found a nest with two eggs on top of the battery in the digger he was using to move stones for the building of a canal-side cafe in Chorley when he noticed the nest.
Booth thought he had scared of the birds but when he returned the next day, three more eggs had appeared.
According to Booth:
We noticed steam coming out of the bonnet after we had been using it for half a day,
We lifted the bonnet up and lo and behold there's a nest on top of the battery box.
The JCB is now out of use until the eggs have hatched.
