Motorists are being tricked by a speed camera - which is actually a well disguised BIRD BOX.
The grey and yellow box is located just behind a hedge and to the passing motorist it looks exactly like the genuine article.
But on closer inspection it soon becomes obvious that there is no lens, but instead a series of holes and perches.
Tara Coshall spotted the unusual bird box near Kilkhampton, Devon, and shared a photo online - but so far no one has fessed up to erecting the phony camera.
She said: "As I was driving through Kilkhampton on my to Bude I came across a new speed camera or so I thought.
"On a closer look it's really a bird box."
The fake camera has gathered a lot of support from locals who think it's a great way to combat speeding.

One person said: "This went up a couple of years ago by the side of the road. It looked really authentic and my god did it slow people down."
Another said: "I think it was originally for an April fool a couple of years back and it certainly worked!"
Another person said: "It's actually more effective than the speed sign further down the road that warns the car behind the one speeding through the village, obviously the sensor needs adjustment."
Another said: "Great idea, and looking after our wild life."
