nearly forgot, said I would post a pic, so this is from my allowed exercise this morning, tree shadows on the path through my local wood,
@plankton there were loads of Great tits in the wood flitting about never seen so many, wouldn't sit still for me to picture them though, at least trees are more obliging in that way :)

Your lucky to have them, we don't see to many down in the south east but have flocks of Long tailed Tits. Many birds we have on the Island here but I like the Oystercatchers. They roost inland overnight and fly over the houses first thing on their way to the seashore ...noisy blighters! :]

@Staffylover , @fr499y - yes, it is an acer. At the time I was a little disappointed that I could not get a red-leaved one but this one is a proper little cracker. We planted it maybe 15/16 years ago and it is at its glorious best in spring. All golden-leaved. Then turns a light green in summer and depending on the summer we had can be burnt-red/orangey in autumn (or just dull brown).
Our neighbour just enquired whether we had any plans of cutting it back (yikes). Well, not in the spring; autumn earliest :D

We found this awesome place in Yorkshire last year that had a massive 'Japanese Maple' Garden. Must of been at least 10 acers in this small section
