Bird in another nest (4)


I believe the answer is:


'bird' is the definition.
(erne is a kind of bird)

'in another nest' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates a hidden word.
'ERNE' can be found hidden inside 'another nest'.

(Other definitions for erne that I've seen before include "European sea eagle" , "Marine flyer" , "flyer in the main" , "Island-studded lake in Fermanagh" , "bird of prey" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror and The Daily Express.
