Description:

This is the same plant as the one at http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/329509?nav=users_observations. There was some confusion with Prunus spinosa, but the new photos show that it is Berberis.

Not the same plant as before

If you look at the leaf-toothing of what you previously posted, you will see it is quite different.

This indeed is Berberis, but I'm afraid that what you posted before was definitely Prunus.

Prunus/ Berberis

Thanks Alan for posting the above comment, I was beginning to think as the original person who suggested the observation was Prunus spinosa,that something was very wrong as no less than 3 experts agreed with my id,perhaps this is in a hedgerow where both species are present and rather intermingled!

Thanks guys!

I thought I'd gone straight back to the same plant, but obviously not - I must have been photographing one plant while looking at another!
