CHALLENGING all comers in this year's St Albans pancake race is the Abbey. A four-man Abbey team won last year's race and the coveted frying pan. They will be defending their trophy at this year's race which starts at 12.30pm on Tuesday, February 28, outside the St Albans Tourist and Information Centre (TIC). Teams must comprise four people who are able to run and toss a pancake, hopefully catching it in their frying pan. Fancy dress or corporate colours are always welcome but not obligatory. To register a team either contact the TIC on 01727 864511 or e-mail tic@stalbans.gov.uk

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.
