Berries #2

berries (1)

English ivy (Hedera helix)

it is hailed as one of the best plants for wildlife. Its evergreen, waxy foliage provides shelter for birds to nest and insects to hibernate, and it also provides food for caterpillars of the holly blue butterfly and the double-striped pug, swallow-tailed and yellow-barred brindle moths.Β Calorie-rich ivy berries are loved by birds, including the song thrush, mistle thrush, redwing, blackbird and blackcap.
