Wrens make their nest in hose reel in New Forest

Daily Echo: Hose about that then? Hose about that then?

IT looks like these wrens are home and hosed – because they’ve made their nest in a coiled hose reel.

The garden birds carefully gathered moss, horse hair and feathers to line their new home in the New Forest.

Photographer Tim Withall, 74, stumbled across the unusual nest in his back garden in Lyndhurst and later spotted the doting parents feeding their young, as well as a female robin who also stepped in to help bring the hungry chicks some tasty bugs.
