Viburnum  (Viburnum tinus (Laurustinus))

Viburnum shrub in my front garden, grown to around 7ft in height. Accompanied by laurel and osmanthus to form an “L” shaped hedge.
Lovely white flowers in winter through to spring.
Flowers followed by blue-black berries.
Evergreen and hardy.
Often little birds have nested in here over the years, which is nice.

Aren't they lovely? I would miss mine. Last spring we had a bird nesting in one but sadly a Crow discovered it and the nest was abandoned. :(

It's flowering beautifully Kate like the idea of the L shape hedge.

Thanks Thrupennybit and Karen. I took this pic today, but when the weather improves, I’ll get out and take a pic of the full hedge.
What a shame Karen, it’s the magpies we have to keep an eye on in our back garden.
