In Scotland, an animal charity is trying to find the owners of a confused peacock which tried to squeeze through a cat flap.

The bird was discovered outside a house near Ordhead, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. He was pecking the windows of the property and then tried to enter through the cat flap, the Scottish SPCA said.

Carers from the charity collected him and named him Felix. He is being cared for at the Scottish SPCA’s rescue and rehoming centre in Drumoak, and animal rescue officer Helen Bissett said: “If no-one comes forward for this cheeky boy we’ll find him a suitable new home.”
