Yellowing leaves on an Eleagnus ebbingei. This shrub was planted in 2013 and has suddenly developed many yellow leaves. Anything to do with all the wet weather or another cause please. The small fruits look healthy enough though.

As most of the damage is in one spot, then it could be the cold winds. They don't like to be in wet, sodden situation but seeing that it has survived for many years, I would wait until Springtime and review the situation.
