There has been a burglary and an attempted burglary on the same street in St Albans.

On Saturday, February 24 two homes on Oakwood Drive were targeted by thieves.

Between 2.45pm and 10.25pm, they got into a property via the rear and carried out an untidy search but took nothing.

A burglary was attempted between 9am and 9pm where the criminals tried to get in through the rear of another home.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious or has any information has been asked to call 101 and give crime reference number F1/18/928 for the burglary, or F1/18/925 for the attempted burglary.

There was also a burglary on Hazelwood Drive between 8pm on February 24 and 11pm on February 25.

Offenders entered from the rear of the property and it is not known if anything was taken.

Anyone with any information on this should ring 101 and give reference F1/18/930.

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.
