Blackbirds set up nest in plant trolley at Blooms garden centre

A Norfolk garden centre has not just got crowds flocking to visit it, but also four blackbirds which have created a nest in one of the plant trolleys at the centre.

The garden birds have taken up residency at Blooms of Bressingham Garden Centre, near Diss, and visitors are flocking to the centre to see them.

Adrian Goodall, the centre's general manager, said: 'The blackbirds built a nest on one of our plant trolleys in the bedding plant area around 10 weeks ago and they seem pretty set on staying.

'The new chicks seem very content and we're making sure that the birds are looked after. All of our visitors love them.

'We often get birds visiting or nesting at Blooms. We have a family of blue tits in the post above our security cameras. They are watching over the garden centre as additional security.'
