Window shopping peacock caught on camera

A peacock with an eye for fashion was caught on CCTV cameras window shopping at a clothes shop called Peacocks.
A number of the birds live in Dunfermline's Pittencrieff Park but often wander out into the town and along the High Street where the shop is located.
Staff in the Fife town noticed that this particular peacock likes to shelter from the wind and rain in the tiled area in front of the doors. It is normally too engrossed by the window displays to be bothered by passers-by.
Martin Rae, manager of the fashion store, said: "The bird just seemed to make straight for the shop. He must have seen the word Peacocks above the door and thought it was an invitation." It has found a home for itself and sits there under the cover away from the rain and preens its feathers. It is quite amicable and friendly."The bird started visiting Peacocks around a month ago when the weather worsened.
