Alex Murphy, who lives in Ballinderry, with the bird’s nest which he found under his bonnet.

The nest contains four small eggs and it was when preparing his car for a service that Alex made the discovery. He said: “I’ve no idea when it happened. I drive the car every day. When the bonnet’s closed you can see there’s just enough room for a small bird to squeeze in.

“Sadly, the eggs aren’t likely to hatch now without their mother. There must an angry bird about somewhere looking for its eggs.”
