At first  when I spotted this  colourful lump attached to the tree I assumed it was a plastic bag carried there by the wind. On closer inspection however it turned out to be a type of fungus. It struck me as unusual because I am accustomed to seeing fungus growing on fallen trees in Wanstead Park, this tree is growing in Redbridge Lane. Having just watched the television news reporting how even more British trees are now under threat from disease I hope this is not an omen for this one.
