St Albans council was alerted to the fridges, which had been dumped in the middle of the road in Nashes Farm Lane, on Wednesday, September 5.

As they were obstructing the road, the fridges were initially the responsibility of the highways agency, but a member of the public moved them to one side and cleared the obstruction, therefore placing them under the council’s jurisdiction.

The fridges were removed by the highways agency by the time the council’s contractors arrived, and there will be an investigation to find out who is responsible.

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.
