The Sweet Cherry tree was full of ripe cherries in the morning, by the afternoon the starlings had stripped the tree of cherries and leaves. All that was left of the cherries is shown in the photo below.
The ripe cherries have sweet, firm flesh. There are many recipes using cherries, but our favourite is cherry clafoutis.
We have put old tights over the cherry branches in the past, to keep the birds off. We will have to be on our toes next year to stop the starlings taking the sweet cherries again!
