Sally Blyth reports:-
Our resident peacock is still here! Ha hasn’t been calling for a while and has lost all his beautiful tail feathers, but I am assured that both of these things are normal. He still roosts in the shrine oak tree at night. He spends a lot of time in our garden pecking at the windfall apples – and also in our neighbour’s garden – pecking at their cabbages!
He loves mealworms and will probably have to have a lot of them if he stays here for the winter.
