Priscilla: Queen of the Parkland – New peahen arrives on the Estate

What better start to a day in the office than to welcome a new addition into the Broughton Family? Percy, the beloved peacock on the Broughton Hall Estate in Yorkshire, has been too long without a friend. Although he receives daily attention from people he rarely gets to spend quality time with his own kind. However, all that is about to change…

Percy has to be bribed with food to come down to meet his new mate…

Patient Priscilla waits in her cage having just been dropped off at Broughton

The peahen is left for a while in the formal gardens to adjust to her new surroundings

Soon, we approach her to unlock the cage and let her explore

She takes her first steps in her new, upgraded habitat

And then she’s off, wandering free, in search of a new life at Broughton

Percy spots her crossing the path and eagerly follows…

We hope it’s a match made in heaven.
