A member has contacted Walk magazine to report a problem with an aggressive peacock on this route: "It's certainly a good walk, but unfortunately it's marred by the presence of a rather aggressive peacock on the path at the top of the Downs. This bird can follow a passer-by and then jump up and claw them. I have been attacked three times and now avoid the area. This may seem a fairly trivial issue, but it's obviously not pleasant for an adult to be attacked, and could be more dangerous still for a child whose face might be within the range of a jumping peacock."
