I never get used to the sad cry of the peacocks at Knossos, no matter how many times I visit. The haunting "mow, mow" echoes through the Bronze Age Minoan Palace like a child lost
The fact that they live at Knossos is no surprise - for they have lived there for centuries. Even the Minoan wall painting of the Prince of Lilies (dated 1600-1500 BC.) features his diadem decorated with lilies and adorned with peacock feathers
This peacock was not keen to be photographed, so very serenely turned and walked the other way....
