Jewellery, power tools and binoculars were taken during the course of two Harpenden burglaries which took place last week.

Both occurred between the junction with Crabtree Lane and the Skew Bridge pub on Southdown Road in Harpenden, and involved burglars entering the rear garden via a side passage and forcing windows open.

One took place between 10.30am on Friday, February 9 and noon on Wednesday, February 14 and the other between 2.30pm on Monday, February 12 and 1.30pm on Tuesday, February 13.

On the second occasion, burglars stole jewellery, power tools, and binoculars, but details of any thefts from the first property have yet to be released.

Police have appealed for information and CCTV footage. To contact them, call 101 and give crime reference F2/18/366 for the first burglary, and F2/18/370 for the second.

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.
