Unknown woodland plant
Walking in a south of england nature reserve I saw this evergreen shrub. Really stands out this time of year, especially with it's stalks.
I want to say that it's a eucalyptus but the leaves are pointed.
All help appreciated.
It's Ruscus aculeatus or Butcher's Broom. Useful for shade.
That's the one. Looks good. Cheers

The things that look like leaves are actually flattened stems.
