Powis Castle...................................................................................... the Peacocks

We had a lovely day out yesterday... a visit to Powis Castle in Wales.

We spent about three hours wandering through the gardens and woodlands.

We've got loads of images to sort through.... this is one of the terraces.
The statues and urns are made of lead.

When we eventually went into the castle two male peacocks were displaying in the courtyard.

This one was blocking the castle entrance.

Mandy getting the full courtship display.

I captured this short clip of the one displaying in front of the shop... watch him doing his shimmy.
It's only twelve seconds long.

That was really spectacular. Saw a peacock at the zoo recently but it didn't want to show off. Loved your video too.
