A privately-built illegal temple-like structure is seen on the top of a 20-storey residential block in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen. A police spokesman said that the elaborate temple-like structure is built illegally on the roof. The temple on top of the building in Shenzhen’s Nanshan district is believed to have been there for at least three years, local media reported. The temple and the inaccessible rooftop had caused concerns over safety issues among some residents. But despite complaints from neighbours, the temple only came into the spotlight after a wealthy physician in Beijing was given 15 days to tear down his illegal villa and garden built atop a 26-storey apartment block on August 12.

For just over an hour some 30 fishing boats circled where 70 3-tonne concrete blocks were dropped in July to form a reef that Spain said was not legal and prompted the government to ramp up border checks with the British overseas territory.

A warbler is released from the ringing hut after being recorded on a private reserve in East Sussex on August 21, 2013 in Rye, United Kingdom. The BTO are currently in the process of recording migrating hirnundines and other birds at the reserve. Hirundines comprise of Sand Martins, House Martins and Swallows, all of which roost in high numbers on the reserve over summer before continuing their migratory route back to Africa. The reserve is close to the East Sussex coast, and forms an ideal habitat for many resident and migratory birds, comprising of low lying reedbeds and marshy peat bog. The site is one of the worlds largest ringing stations, and with the help of BTO staff, trained ringers and volunteers as many as 1000 hirundines can be ringed in one evening at this time of year. Many other birds are also ringed including Nightjar, Grasshopper Warbler and Sparrowhawk. Volunteers capture the birds using long mist nets which are erected and run through the reedbeds before the birds come in to roost every evening. The birds details are then recorded before being released the following morning to contiinue it’s journey. The Information gathered including age, weight and sex allows the BTO to monitor long-term population and global migration patterns which is important for conservation. (Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)
