Doves build nest on CCTV cameras
TWO collared doves have set up their home between two security cameras at a car dealership in Bury St Edmunds.
THEY might have thought it was the safest spot in town.
Two collared doves have set up their home between two security cameras at a car dealership in Bury St Edmunds.
They were first spotted two days ago at Turners Hyundai in Mildenhall Road and staff have welcomed them into their new home.
Sales manager Geoff Fisher said: “They are just there between the two security cameras. They do not interfere with the cameras at all so we're not going to move them.
“None of the customers have noticed them yet. Or if they have nobody has mentioned them. I only happened to notice them because I looked up and there they were. We've now got the nice sound of cooing around the forecourt.”

A spokeswoman for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds said a nest between two security cameras was unusual though stressed if any bird was likely to try and make such a nest, it would be a dove.
“Some birds build cup-shaped nests and some spend hours filling it with exactly the right things. Collared doves, however, make pretty ropey nests and it is not unheard of for eggs to fall through a bit of the nest they have been too lazy to finish off.
“Collared doves simply need something to wedge a nest between and will use twigs and bits of rubbish to build them.”
