The fluffy bird is apparently known to staff and is a regular at the branch, which is in Enfield in North London.

She was spotted nesting on top of the chocolate eggs.

The female pigeon can be seen tucked away on the bottom shelf of the display.

Her feet are on a box of caramel eggs and her feathers are puffed out to help her 'guard' the eggs.

It remained unfazed as Kim bends down to get a closer look at her.

She zooms in to show the pigeon's talons embedded in the tray of chocolates. Kim decided to share the sweet video, and took to TikTok to post her clip last week.

She captioned it: "Female pigeon sneaks into Tesco to protect the chocolate eggs."

The heart-warming video has since been viewed more than 187,000 times, where it has melted the internet's heart.

One viewer wrote: "Okay, this is actually the sweetest thing ever. She's protecting the chocolate eggs."

Another added: "Is she laying Cadbury's?"

One person replied: "Not me bawling my eyes out over a pigeon who thinks chocolate eggs are her babies."

And another said: "Aww she is so cute, I wish you could keep her."

Speaking earlier this week, business owner Kim explained: "The security said the pigeons are locals. The security guard keeps an eye on them.

"I've been there a couple of times, and they tend to fly in and stay near the door.

"When I saw it I went back to my car to get my phone and thought, 'wow the irony'.

"I'm surprised it's had such an impact, but all the TikTokers comments have been funny".
