There were three further burglaries in St Albans last week.

In addition to break-ins on Sovereign Park and Bernard Street, there were burglaries on Elm Drive, Avenue Road, and Hazelwood Drive.

The incident on Elm Drive took place near the junction with Woodland Drive between 4pm and 8pm on Friday, January 19.

Offenders got in through the rear of the house by smashing a patio door window, which they also left through.

Anyone with any information should ring police on 101, and quote reference number F2/18/299.

Between 5pm on Thursday, January 18 and 11am on Saturday, January 20, burglars forced entry via a ground-floor window to a property on Avenue Road.

An untidy search was carried out, but it is not certain if anything was taken.

The Hazelwood Drive burglary took place near the junction with Central Drive between 3pm on Monday, January 15 and 10am on Saturday, January 20.

Burglars forced a ground-floor window to get in.

Anyone with any information should ring 101 and quote reference number HC-20012018-0215.

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.
