An adorable video showing a pigeon guarding Cadbury caramel eggs has been doing rounds and melting netizens’ hearts on the internet. The ‘mother pigeon’ was captured on camera at a Tesco store in Enfield, North London, on January 14. The pigeon, spotted nesting on top of the box full of Cadbury caramel eggs, is familiar to the staff and known to be a regular at the store.
The amusing scene was filmed by shopper Kim Blackman who was stunned at the incident when she visited the store. The 35-year-old was visiting the Tesco store when she noticed the fluffy bird had sneaked in and was resting on the shelf. When Kim closely inspected, she found that the bird was nesting on the box containing Cadbury caramel eggs and recorded the unusual incident on her phone, later putting up the video on TikTok.

According to Daily Mail, Kim while sharing the video captioned it, ‘Female pigeon sneaks into Tesco to protect the chocolate eggs.’ Since then, the video has been a hit on the internet and people are gushing over the heart-warming moment.
