A group of peripatetic peahens are still on the loose after being spotted “relaxing” on a garden shed this morning (Thursday).
Collectively knows as a muster, the group has made its way almost half a mile from Snaefell Park in Sheringham - the site they were first spotted at on Saturday - to a garden in Cowslip Lane.
Sheringham resident Richard Gausden jr, 16, first noticed the four peahens in his garden at 9am today and said he was “quite surprised” as he thought they would have been reunited with their owner already following a police appeal this week.
He said: “They’ve just been relaxing on the shed and eating bread. The only birds we’re used to in our garden is blackbirds and pigeons.”
Mr Gausden had been advised by police that if the birds were not in any danger to leave them.
A Norfolk Constabulary police spokesman said that their rightful owner had not yet come forward to claim the peahens and that they had informed the RSPCA but they were unable to help.
Police are now exploring the possibility to get them re-housed in a zoo.

Tucked away on Pottergate is one of Norwich’s best kept secrets, but it might not stay that way for long.
