    bit blurred, but it looks like one of the bigger cotoneasters, maybe hybridus pendulus.

    Devon.

    Thanks Hosta, I'll check my books. I'm keeping it so the viburnum next to it will be getting a haircut as its also crowding out a purple azalea.

    It looks lovely. I like the rich looking berries.

    They are great. So far no birds have eaten them.

    The birds  will eat them Gm, they usually clear mine just before Christmas when I've had my eye on them to bring indoorsimage

    But I prefer to have the birds

    There seem to be a few shrubs growing in the hawthorn hedge. So far I have found a laurel, orange pyracantha and a wild clematis.

    some of them (like the cotoneaster and Pyracantha) have probably been 'deposited as seeds' by birds in the hedge. image

    You may get your cotoneaster berries indoors this year, as it has been so warm the birds are not particularly hungry yet.  Very few of my, usually by now stripped, shrubs have had any berries taken - and those that have I suspect squirrels rather than birds.
