Dear Sri Puttaraju,

Thanks for sharing these information on this fig tree and its attractions - Hornbills, hill mynas .. truly amazing  birds.
Good to know nature enthusiasts sharing  from that part of U.K, a great place for it has a multitude of flora and fauna around.

 I just tried to understand the fruiting dates of 
Ficus Drupacea alias Ficus Mysorensis
 fruiting seasons

- In Mysore district they are generally known to fruit in the month of June. 
- Farmers who work/stay close to this Mysore fig tree say "These figs were generally  fruiting during rainy seasons (June), these days, we see them 
start fruiting in the month December itself."

From ITP/eflora  database, the fruiting dates are as below

2008
------
24 Feb 2008, Mysore, Raghu
28 Feb 08, Bangalore, Vasant Barve
6 Dec 08,
