A power cut is affecting a swathe of the district this evening.

UK Power Networks say an outage was reported at 5am this morning and is affecting 29 customers across St Albans, Colney Heath, London Colney, Jersey Farm, Marshalswick, Oaklands, Sandridge, Smallford, Tyttenhanger, and Wheathampstead.

The problem is due to a fault on an underground electricity cable, which may mean engineers have to dig up the road to carry out repairs, but it is not known which street.

Power is expected to return between 7pm and 8pm.

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.
