Peacocks move into Dursley
A PAIR of peacocks have mysteriously appeared in Dursley and nearby residents have no idea where they could have come from.
The feathery visitors have become regular sights in people’s gardens and roofs in the last week or so, even surprising nursing care worker Tracey Amesbury, 49, with a visit at her home on Union Street.
"I left the back door open and they decided to come in. I came back from doing some ironing and there they were in the kitchen," she said.
"I think they’re tame because they’re quite docile. They have been around the area for a couple of days now. I’m very curious about what to do with them, I would like to know where they have come from."
Another resident who has been visited by the apparent escapees is Marion Pagett, who has lived on Fortfields for 49 years and has never seen peacocks in the area before.
"My neighbours have rung several animal groups but they are not interested," she said.
"They’re not too much of a nuisance but they are picking all of the green stuff off of everything in the gardens.
"They are all over the place, what if they get into the road? Nobody seems to know where they have come from."
