There are severe delays affecting trains serving St Albans and Harpenden this evening.

A broken rail earlier today between London Blackfriars and London St Pancras International has meant that services running between the stations may still be cancelled.

Although the track has now been fixed, a message on Network Rail’s website warned that disruption is expected to last all day and warned commuters to expect delays of up to 35 minutes.

All scheduled trains from St Albans to Bedford and Sevenoaks are currently running late by at least 20 minutes.

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.
