Guelder Rose berries - the leaves seem to be more popular than the berries on this one. You can eat them but best only when made into jelly otherwise mildly toxic.
there are several bushes of this in a local wood, which are usually full of those scarlet berries, i shall try and get up there sometime soon and have a look :)

on a cautionary note, while many wild fruits and berries may be edible, many are not, and should not be eaten, unless you are absolutely certain of what they are !

Elderberries, still green at the moment, but once they ripen then they will soon disappear once the birds find them !

despite the forecast saying we are going to have a heatwave soon, all these photos are a reminder that winter is not all that far away now :o

must make the most of what is left of the summer :D

I managed to find the bushes in the local wood, and they had lots of the fruit showing, and something had been chewing on the leaves to,

the rose bushes have lots of rosehips on them this year,
as do the hawthorns and other trees, hope its not a sign of a worse than normal winter on its way :(
