Community / ‘Massive’ bird nest find prompts bonnet reminder

A REMINDER has been made for people to check under their bonnets after a westside van had its engine compartment filled up with a bird’s nest.

Margaret and John Morrison, from Sand, were left surprised a couple of days ago after noticing the collection of straw and moss under the bonnet of their Renault Kangoo.

Luckily the nest was spotted before any damage was done.

“I don’t know how the van hadn’t gone on fire – there was so much there,” Margaret said.

A similar reminder was put out a few years ago after a van ended up being engulfed in flames on the road near Weisdale.

The fire service said the most likely cause was a bird’s nest in the engine compartment.
