In Epping this morning I turned left towards my rat run. This has the joy of avoiding the lights and traffic cameras of Epping AND the fact I might see the odd bit of wildlife.
I was still in the last few houses of Epping when I saw a Fox standing by the side of the road. I do think a Fox standing on an urban garden is incongrous. I looked at him as I drove past (he is I think a rural fox, looked less scrawny than the ones you see in the centres of large towns) and he looked at me.
I looked in my mirror and he was watching me drive down the road.
