SHOOT: Good to see an effort made to protect nature.
Work on a £100million building development ground to a halt yesterday - because of a goose.
The bird has laid three eggs right in the middle of the building site and has been given her own bodyguard to protect her and her brood.
Security guard Jake Fielding has been assigned to give the Canada Goose 24-hour protection and takes his duties extremely seriously.
The development that is being delayed because of the goose is known as the Cube - which was meant to be the finishing touch to an exclusive area of Birmingham.
'It wouldn't be a good idea to move her before her goslings have hatched.'
Cllr Mike Whitby said of the Cube back in 2006 before the goose incident that it would break all the boundaries of what has been achieved in Birmingham so far.
