Leycesteria

These berries are a big favourite with blackcap birds!

Thanks. I'll keep a look out for them as there are several places where this grows down the Cuckoo Trail.

I have this in my garden and blackbirds feast on the berries every year. I have also seen a robin feed them to its fledglings this year. The berries are edible but taste like bitter caramel.
