Mistletoe

I was amazed to see the amount of Mistletoe growing in the Lime Trees on the Burghley Estate.

Maybe the air's a lot cleaner up there on the Leicestershire/Lincolnshire/Northamptonshire borders as it's pretty rare around here.   I have seen it growing on Poplar, Willow, Apple, Hawthorn and once on a Red Oak - anyone ever seen it on English Oak (Quercus robur)?

I don't ever recall seeing it grow where I lived in west sussex, but it grows here on the outskirts of our forest. Great pics, have never seen it like that before. Thanks.
Regards.
