Red-light district: Meet Roxanne the dove who has built her nest in a traffic light


Spot the birdie? Roxanne the dove looks quite content in her nest in the traffic light fitting

Nestled in a traffic light, this dove has earned the sobriquet Roxanne for building her nest in the red-light district.

Minding her own business this feathered friend has been spotted sleeping at a busy junction near Basildon, Essex.

Some hawk-eyed driver noticed the dove, but from afar most people would struggle to spot the birdie

The bird, nicknamed Roxanne after the famous Police song, is not proving too much of a distraction for motorists.

And the tiny dove seems happy to snooze - not only while cars go whizzing past beneath her, but also as the stop light illuminates.

And, when she awakes, she can always keep a bird's eye view on the road below.
