An Amazing Show of Dedication


Photo Source: SOLENT

In an amazing show of dedication, this Mistle Thrush puffed her body up to twice her normal size and used her body to save her nest and chicks. The nest, which was built on top of a downpipe, blocked the water’s flow and caused the gutter to flood.

Amateur wildlife photographer Dennis Bright, who took the photos above, told the UK Telegraph:

"She had to come up with a solution so she puffed herself up so she was twice the size of her mate and used her body as a cork to stop the water -- it was absolutely amazing.

She was very dedicated, sitting there even when the rain was hammering down. Then every half an hour she would get out, dry herself off and come back.”

Now that’s dedication. Incredible!
