Seasonal excess

Delighted to see the Redwings were still stuffing their faces with Cotoneaster berries at Dempsey Towers quicker than I can clear a tin of Quality Street.
The birds were there when we left for the east coast on Christmas Eve and were still stripping the branches today as we tried to reinstate a bit of normality to the tinselly routine having got home yesterday. Brilliant.

I’m no gardener, but this year the maturing Cotoneaster is finally absolutely covered in berries, and while I was hoping for something in the Waxwing line, Redwings will do just fine, even if they are so wary you have to watch, snap and film ’em through the window.
