This is the moment a father and son discovered a nest of robins in the most unlikely place.

Damien O'Sullivan (28) and his father were clearing out a barbecue in their West Cork home when they made the unexpected discovery.

Luckily Damien it didn't send Damien into a flap and he filmed the beautiful event at the property in Clonakilty.

He told Independent.ie: "I was down in West Cork and we were in a holiday home cleaning up the place. We were about to move the barbecue but when we opened it we found a robin's nest there.

"My dad tutted and they all started waving up at us."

He added: "I haven't seen something like this before. It was like looking at a documentary, it was so beautiful."

Damien, a hairdresser in Cork City, said they will not disturb the barbecue again for the next three to four weeks, allowing the chicks a chance to grow.
