The Crow Road

I've had a fairly non riveting day at work today, involving as it did sorting out our inventory and recording serial numbers of everything. Still, creating a new spreadsheet of 60 or so entries did give me a feeling of having achieved something.

Although my current task of trying to sort out an irritating issue with my spacebar on my Chromebook is even less thrilling. Maybe it's just down to me being a rubbish typist rather than anything else.

I did manage to get outside for a bit today, a quick ten minutes away from my desk to avoid  the setting in of cabin  fever. I watched a very noisy blue tit by my little herb garden. I looked at shafts of sun piercing the clouds.

And I watched one of the bold as brass carrion crows that live on campus, making its way among  the cars looking for discarded sandwiches, chips and the other discarded detritus you find at a large workplace like ours. I've seen a single bread crust lead to a mighty three way tug of war between these smart and successful birds.

They are always watching you though. Trying to figure you out. Wondering when they are going to go the full Hitchcock and take over the world.

  1. I get the same sort of feeling when Magpies are skulking round the garden.

  2. If only they had the sense to gather together and get on with one another they could indeed take over the world - there are plenty of them.

  3. So gloomy today there's no way I'd see a crow further than 5 metres away
