Found him, the noisy big thing! This peacock has been wandering around the town for years and years. It seems he is suffering greatly from lack of female company and spends half the night calling mournfully for a mate. Sorry for the poor quality pic, but his lordship is perched at least 10m up in a huge gum tree down by the river and it was 6.00 am. His tail is truly spectacular--I have no idea how he gets off the ground given the volume of it, but he does.
