Melissa Kane lost her ring on Friday at around 1pm while in St Albans city centre.

She told the Herts Ad: “The most likely place that I lost it was Russell Avenue car park, but it could have been anywhere between Wilde About Hair on French Row and the car park, as that is the route I walked.

“I think it must have slipped off my hand while I saw searching for my parking ticket.

“I’ve had the ring for 13 years, so I am absolutely devastated to have lost it.

“Not only is it the ring with which my husband proposed, but it has been on my hand all that time, and through one international move and the birth of our two children.

“It has huge sentimental value and I can’t believe that I may never see it again.

“I haven’t been able to sleep properly since losing it.”

•If you find the ring, email Melissa at mvnkane@yahoo.com

You can also contact Herts Police on 101, quoting reference L7BX2KA79B.

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.
