Well, you're always modest Verd. It's your best feature, apart from your lumpy legs of course

I believe they eat them in order Vivien - red, then orange, then yellow. They leave the pinks and whites till last, so unless it's a really cold winter many won't be eaten at all. ' Sorbus Vilmorinii' is another popular variety with pink berries.

You're right pd. Fussy beggars aren't they!

You caught me red handed Verd....and red faced too after I'd seen you...

I think it was your varicose veins not the groceries that made your legs look lumpy.You looked like Nora Batty.

I thought the same as Berghill and Verdun. Wiegela for the top shrub - both pix , Lonicera BG for the bottom left pic and Euonymous for the right hand one, but if  the bottom right is a close up of the bottom left shrub I'd say Euonymous.

I know what you mean about curiosity Jim. Just nice to know what it is. The big difference with eagles in flight is the wingspan but it'd be hard to gauge if you don't have another bird to compare it with at the time. Perhaps you'll get another chance to see it.
