Traffic Camera Captures Closeup of a ‘Speeding’ Bird

Forget wildlife cameras, when it comes to capturing cool photos of birds, it seems all we need are traffic cams. Just a few months after a CCTV camera in Canada captured these shots of a snowy owl in flight, a traffic cam in the UK repeated the feat with a ‘speeding’ blue tit.
