Land Rovers are frequently hailed as the ultimate off road vehicle. They have earned this reputation on their utilitarian merits; superior drivetrains, advanced technology and a proven history of conquering the toughest of terrains under the worst of conditions. Rarely is the Land Rover recognized as a cozy home for infants, especially if those infants are of the avian variety - until now.
A Land Rover tour vehicle used at the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve in Norfolk became the unlikely home for a family of swallows that used the roof of the vehicle as a nest for two young chicks. Warden Darren Williams was delighted to find the nest and took great care to ensure the safety of the birds, even outfitting a safety net outside of the Rover that would catch the chicks should they fall from their nest on an expedition.
“The birds seemed very happy and, as we returned from tours, you could almost set your watch by the parents returning with a mouthful of food to feed the chicks,” noted Darren. Adding to the “cuteness factor,” the chicks have recently left the nest but continue to follow the Land Rover around the nature reserve.
