Unusual Blue Tit nest

Christine sent this picture home from work. The Blue Tit has at least 6 small chicks but was not spotted until last Friday, so during nest-building, laying and incubating the bin was in constant use. How the adult has not been burnt or the nest ignited no-one knows. There is now a notice on the bin asking people not to use it and an alternative has been supplied. Christine asked if I wanted to ring them but I don't think there is any need as any fledgling will be easily identifiable by the coughing and wheezing.
