Dove takes up residence in red-light district

This dove seems very proud of her flash new home - inside a traffic light at a busy road junction.

The feather-brained bird built her nest in front of the red traffic light in Basildon, Essex.

The unusual 'red light' location has earned her the nickname Roxanne, after the Police song.

Most drivers passing the spot have no idea there's anything different about this particular set of lights. Only the most eagle-eyed are able to spot the bird and her nest of twigs.
