The blue berries in the third picture are sloes, but the red ones I didn't know at all. They're not rowan/ash, they were glossy and shiny like red-currants. In fact, there's a close-up of them in the last post on my blog.

Blackberries at the end of the garden, and a bottle of sloe gin. Already you can see the rich red colour coming out of the berries . They are incredibly tannic, I don't know any use for them other than sloe gin (or vodka).
