That is one hell of a lot of mistletoe- perhaps overwhelming for the host.Earlier this month I was pleased to see Red Mistletoe, Viscum cruciatum, growing in hawthorns in the Sierra de les Nieves, Spain.
There are many trees in the Mickleham - Leatherhead area that are (almost) as similarly festooned with Mistletoe. I don’t know of anywhere else where the plant is so plentiful. Red Mistletoe? I need to look that one up.
