Spring must be in the air – we think this is the first official ‘showing off’ of 2020! Isn’t he a beauty.

We have two peacocks here at Bickleigh Mill. They are father and son and they get along quite happily all year round but do tend to keep their distance more in the Spring when they consider that they are rivals for female attention! They get their full feathers back in time for Spring and will show off to pretty much anything, including pigeons and crows but they do especially love a camera. They can be quite feisty towards anyone wearing bright colours or fluorescent safety gear.
