S159 Opal Biodiversity Survey privet hedge

This is (I think!) a privet hedge very close to previous hawthorne hedge..berries still in tact. Although I understand, that privet berries are not poisonous to birds - it is interesting that this hedge had lots of berries whereas the hawthorne had very few remaining

Species interactions

No interactions present.

Pretty sure of this

Even my well mature one has showed in the other observations growing up a limestone cliff.

The berries on ivy mature in December as they are very late flowering and can even still be seen in flower in December,berries are eaten by birds but usually after all the hawthorn and other red berried plants are finished.This is not an indicator of climate change.
