I first recollect seeing the peacock in the spring of 2005, shortly after moving here.  He lives about 3 miles north of Tavistock, on one of my regular short (daily-exercise length) cycling routes.  On that occasion he was sitting on a gate and displaying a fantastic tail!  But he only occasionally puts in an appearance.

Today I had the ‘phone in my pocket as I cycled the route, and caught him on camera.  Unfortunately it’s not his most photogenic season, as he’s evidently moulted and looks rather tatty.  But still, pretty impressive for the UK 🙂
