St Jude and Wanstead Park

Off message but early this morning I went for a glorious run around Wanstead Park. It was less than 24 hours since the storm "St Jude" struck Southern England. In contrast to yesterday, it was sunny, bright and dry.

There were a number of trees blown over or snapped off in the Park. A carpet of broken branches and leaves on the ground but remarkably little obvious wide spread damage.

I saw  a cheeky young fox near the stables who thought if s/he stood very still I wouldn't notice. I kept watching until the fox got bored with me and sat down.

Hat tip for pictures to Richard at the Friends of Wanstead Park website.
