It's clear son is hiding in den (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

nest

Here is my best explanation:

'den' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'it's clear son is hiding in' is the subsidiary indication.

'it's clear' becomes 'net' (as in net profit).

'son' becomes 's'.

'is hiding in' is an insertion indicator.

'net' enclosing 's' is 'nest'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for nest that I've seen before include "Snuggle in like bird", "Retreat!", "stack", "Home to a bird", "Bird's home", "Structure to lay eggs", "Lay eggs here", "Home for birds", "Roost" and "Stack of tables".)
