Mother nature can be so wonderful

What a great story and great photo of a thrush protecting her chicks from water. Telegraph:

The Mistle Thrush had built her nest on top of a downpipe, blocking the water’s passage and causing the gutter to flood.

But desperate to protect her young, she puffed herself up to twice her size and sat in the drainpipe to stop the tide of rain water swamping the nest.

She was so occupied with her task that her mate was left to feed her and their young.

The images were captured by amateur wildlife photographer Dennis Bright at a house in Fareham, Hampshire.
