Watching all the fledglings on Springwatch but struggling to keep my eyes open - the rioning hasn't happened - maybe tomorrow - if it's cooler than it was today

The photos enlarged for me - the leaves aren't hawthorn-ish - they look more pyracantha-ish to me - but if there are no spines

Sorry, umbellifers are plant with flat heads of flowers like fennel, cow parsley, ammi majus, angelica etc 

Hoverflies love them.

Such a talent and described by those who met him as a lovely kind and gentle man.

So sad

Yes, sad isn't it - according to those who met him he was a really nice man, quiet and gentle.  He had that awful accident didn't he

Hi Sandra

That looks like aphid damage to me.  Not a lot you can do about it and a healthy tree will not be bothered by it.  

Encourage ladybirds and bluetits to your garden - the bluetit fledglings hoover up the aphids in our garden.  

Hoverflies also eat aphids, so planting lots of umbellifers that aphids love will encourage them into your garden too. 

Good luck
