Children at Manor Park Montessori Nursery are delighted at the return of their wandering peacock.
The nursery acquired Isaac, the peacock, in May to help promote the idea of children caring for animals. But owner Ladell Delfan-Azary feared Isaac had been caught by a fox, after he disappeared for nearly a week.
However, Isaac was found by students just half a mile away, in their garden in Whitehead Way.
The students fed Isaac, who spent his days looking at himself in the glass patio doors and slept on the roof at night.
An appeal in the Advertiser to find the owner led to his capture and safe return.
The nursery has now bought Isaac a new mirror to admire himself in.
