The champagne for Saturday nights village coronation gathering was due to be delivered yesterday but the vintner still has it in their warehouse. ' Don't worry guvnor. We'll get it to you by Wednesday '. The gentleman who answers the phone goes on to add ' We've been busy with the coronation'. This is the new British catch all excuse. I'm half expecting the Volvo garage to phone up and tell me the fitting of the replacement back door struts ( thankfully under warranty ) will have to be delayed because they're snowed under with coronation work.
The other crows have moved on but the crow with white wings has decided to linger. It's sitting on the garden fence unbothered by our presence. The farmer with the silver Mitsubishi stops to see what I'm looking at. He thinks, but isn't 100 percent sure, that these albino or leucistic crows are spurned by other crows. If so, this one might have decided to throw his lot in with the villagers. The village has many well stocked bird feeders which may have influenced the crows decision to hang around.
