Description:

Looked in my tree and shrub book (included is bud type and arrangements) but to no avail. Forgive the dog poo bag in the added photo - some non-thinking person when there is a dog poo bin less than 100 yards away. 3rd pic of leaves added.

Apple or Pear?

Or possibly a Sorbus of the Whitebeam group.

apples or pears sadly from this coastal shrub. Never mind - I have one further pic to add to try to aid ID. Maybe we need to wait for leaves to appear.

Waste

Dog bags are a waste in the country. It would be far better if the owners were told to flick it off the path with a stick.
Have a look at this.

Litter

Someone must have thrown an apple core down a few years ago. You have got some free pickings later in the year!
