    Pyracantha has pretty clusters of creamy flowers in Spring/ early Summer followed by berries, usually orange, but sometimes red or yellow in Autumn. Much loved by blackbirds.

    thanks for the reply, looking at pics I think rhododendron is spot on, not sure about the second, I dont think it had berries on last year..!!

    The close up pic of number 2 made me think of my chaenomeles japonica.  I don't have a pyracantha to compare the difference. Had a google and they are very similar guessing on just the leaf and spines. 

    I'm probably wrong image. Just throwing another possibility into the mix image
