A FAMILY of Blue Tits have found an unusual place to make their new home.

The birds have created a next in a traffic cone outside Dance Expression in Norton.

Tony Wragg, father of Lucy and Anna, who run the dance school, made the discovery while cutting the grass outside the premises.

He said: "We have few cones on the grass which some of the boys use to play football while their sisters are at dance classes.

"I was cutting the grass and picked up a cone to move it when a little bird flew out. The nest is made of cotton wool, it's amazing how it got in there."

Tony has now placed the cone back and attached a note so the young family are not disturbed."
