A broken down train at Harpenden is causing delays of currently about 15minutes on the southbound Thameslink line (April 11).

According to the National Rail website, disruption and alternations between Bedford and Brighton are expected until 9.15am.

The train in question is having power problems, but the driver is talking to technicians to resolve the issue.

Once it is cleared from the tracks the service should go back to normal, it says online.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
