That's an interesting point Kef as this cherry plum is right next door to a now dead Trailblazer plum.  I had discounted the fact that it might be a sucker off the old Trailblazer as that had red fruit and red leaves and pink blossom, unlike this that has green leaves, white blossom and yellow fruit  - interesting though.

Dove and Nut have done it again!!  Spot on.   Thanks.

The narrative also says that the fruit can ripen to yellow which fits perfectly.

Thanks Nut.  Last year it had one or two tiny ripened yellow fruit the size of a conventional cherry but this seems a bit bigger which made me wonder if it was a cherry plum.

Any ideas what this tree is?  I cut it back a bit today and took a picture of it and the little unripe fruit which fell off a branch.  It almost looks like a cherry.  Could it be a wild cherry or cherry plum?

And you are right John Scott - hydrangea paniculata.

What a fabulous picture - and it makes up for the trapped starling.  You are doing great.

Will this keep the carrot root fly out?

This made me chuckle as what a lot of work has gone into keeping a tiny insect out.  It looks like it will hold OK as it seems to be tucked into a corner as well.  Just keep a close eye on it, keep watering them and I hope you get some good carrots.
