I have been nurturing it thinking it is an ornamental quince, but the berries are confusing me - thanks




It looks like a Viburnum of some sort.

Sorry Tillia, looks like Cotoneaster to me, maybe C. cornubia or franchetii

I would agree with Bamboo. It looks like a Cotoneaster to me too.

I agree. Possibly Cotoneaster franchettii.

thanks everybody, I will check out my books re. cotoneasters, but I wish it was a quince!

Well you could always buy yourself a quince - and the birds like the berries on the cotoneaster, so someone gets the benefit;-)
