Friendly peacock causes a stir
A FRIENDLY peacock has been causing a stir after taking up residence in a Suffolk garden.
The curious bird mysteriously appeared in Borley Green near Woolpit and has made himself quite at home.
Rebecca George spotted the intruder when he dropped in last week and he has been ruffling a few feathers among her free-range hens.
“He’s stunning, absolutely beautiful,” she said. “Seeing this beautiful bird walking across our patio was lovely but he did cause a bit of a stir among our chickens.
“He keeps running around behind them, waiting to play but they get a bit perturbed.”
