Swiss sue - love that quote - i am aspiring to be a real gardener!

Stacey - tawny owls twit twoo to one another AND make a murderous screeching noise ( which was what woke me last night). Barn owls just screech - but it is a different sound - more of a hiss. Not sure about the other sorts. I would guess yours are tawnies.

Morning all - at least that's what the clock says - view out the window begs to differ!  Owls had a noisy night here.  Nice to hear them, but not so much at 4am.

Lost,stolen or strayed?

About 3-4 foot - width and height. And preferably something evergreen. Hadn't thought of a viburnum - what sort are best for berries?

Does anyone know a plant/shrub with good clusters of red berries? I am thinking some sort of cotoneaster, but i know there are lots of different sorts so wondered if anyone has a favourite? Many thanks
