I heard it calling, but couldn't see it. Then, finally, it was spotted on the roof of the building opposite.
A quick call to the couple of nearby hotels and I found out that it wasn't actually their bird. So perhaps he's a bit of a lone wolf, prowling the Surrey villages looking for a sexy peahen.
It eventually flew down, and wandered off down an alley seeming fairly happy with life. I hope he doesn't get run over.
By the way, my calendar tells me that it's mid-May. Outside, it feels more like mid-February..

|Very poor quality: taken through a window.|
|Man about town.|
|And off he struts.|
