Bittersweet - not deadly nightshade; Bedruthan Steps
Berries and flowers of Bittersweet, Solanum dulcamara, by the coastal path on the National Trust property at Carnewas. "Bittersweet is often miscalled Deadly Nightshade", according to Richard and Alastair Fitter in "The wild flowers of Britain and Northern Europe". They say that Bittersweet berries are poisonous, Deadly Nightshade berries are extremely poisonous. The berries go from green to yellow to red, and the photo shows this progression. The flowers are purple with a yellow spike of anthers.
