Peacock on the roof

The peacock that wandered down the street a couple of weeks ago is back.

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..

Exploring the rooftops.

Very poor quality: taken through a window.

Man about town.

And off he struts.
