Cherry tree protection

With last year being our first year here, we were discovering what trees we have and it wasn’t until too late that we realised we had a cherry tree in the orchard, nestled amongst the apple trees.  By too late I mean the birds got to them before us.
This cherry tree was really productive as were some others we have.  This tree however is smaller and easier to pick than the others, so we have claimed this one and we’ll just have to see if the birds beat us to the other ones!
The tree before and after netting was put in place.  I hope we get a decent crop again this year, one we can actually harvest though!
