Most readers will remember only too well when a stretch of the London Road service road was turned into ‘Permit Only’ parking around eighteen months ago. Quite a few of them will have been fined for parking there, not realising that the previous 30-minutes limit no longer applied.
Anyway, quite a few people still park there, and quite a few people still get parking enforcement notices stuck on their windscreens.
However, it’s possible that drivers will avoid that parking in that stretch of road for a different reason now. Crows!
Yes, it seems that crows are now nesting behind the large promotional hoarding that covers the front of several buildings. And, the crows do what crows have to do…. If you park there, make sure that your windscreen washer bottle is full first!
