NEARLY two weeks after a four ft statue of the Virgin Mary was stolen from a back garden, police are still trying to trace it.

Pc Ian Aldridge from the London Colney Neighbourhood Team, said: "The statue, worth about £400, has extreme sentimental value as it used to be on the victims' daughter's grave."

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.
