Bird's 'red light district' home

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.
Despite the traffic, not to mention the constantly changing light, Roxanne seems very pleased with her choice of nesting site.
After all, she does having something of a bird's eye view.
