Another very helpful set of photos

Thanks again, definatley common alder. I can see the purple buds which are on short stalks. Everyone has their own way of remembering distinctive features....for alder I imagine Alan Alder (the actor from MASH) sitting under a tree near the water with a purple hat on - ok so this is not for everyone, but it works well for me!

I like it Debbie. I'll never look at an Alder in the same way again.
