weeping willow

Good idea Dennis, then we'll know which willow we're talking about.

It's raining.

My neighbour brings barrowloads of horse droppings. When he's filled one site I have to get out there and find him somewhere else to tip. It will either have to be done today or tomorrow.

I don't think C. lacteus is ripe yet here, they're always one of the last, then are stripped in days.

'Cornubia' is always stripped just before Christmas when I have my eye on them for decoration purposes

Thank you Daintiness. Sorry, I missed your reply when you posted it.  

I thought that might be it, rather than not ripe yet. The tree has been there for years, another one of my seed growing successes, but it's never berried like this before. I think we're too dry, rowans generally don't thrive, they stay alive, just.

The wet couple of years we had probably accounts for this year's bounty. Sorbus aucuparia did well too.

I always think herons have a touch of the prehistoric about them in flight

I see this one from time to time flying low over the fen.

A raptor, biggish. Dark brown back, lighter under the wings, It lacks the white band at the base of the tail like the hen harrier. When I first saw it I thought it was a harrier of some sort but I'm not so sure now. It's not a kite or a buzzard. I recognise those 2 

Any ideas?

So would I Dove, mine don't do that well though a couple of the x media ones do.

I might have to start some more in better soil
