Mystery peacocks spotted in Blackrod garden
WHEN Bolton councillor and Blackrod resident Ann Cunliffe heard a noise in her garden — she did not expect to meet such exotic visitors.
Cllr Cunliffe expected to see a pair of herons when she rushed out into her garden, but was delighted to find a couple of peacocks sitting on the garden fence.
The birds then flew on to the roof of the house before making their way into the trees behind.
Cllr Cunliffe said: “Usually in the garden we have a range of visitors including pigeons, blackbirds, sparrows, frogs and weasels, but we’ve never had peacocks before.
“I am still pondering where the peacocks came from — I can only hope they arrived home safely after their visit.”
A spokesman for the RSPB said: “Peacocks are not native to this country and so these two will most likely belong to someone.
“The birds are originally from Asia and can survive in the wild — they are curious creatures and are not afraid to explore different surround- ings as was the case with these two.”
