The sunshine of October 2015 has made the colour of the berries stand out . Spindle, is a small tree native to Ireland that has four segmented berries with orange seeds inside.
The dark berries of Purging Buckthorn trees are much less frequently seen but are found round Cavan lakes . This one was photographed in Killykeen.
Not to be confused with sloes to make sloe gin . I believe the purging buckthorn has a less pleasant effect on the digestive system.
The glossy red berries of Guelder rose are frequently seen in Cavan
especially round the lakes.
