Hi cicuta 58

Thanks for your revision of my very tentative identification.
I agree the leaves do look very much like Salix Cinerea. At first I was concerned because photos of that show stems to be green, but on reading in "Trees in Britain" by Roger Phillips I see that "young shoots are covered with brown down."
So I'm happy to accept your amendment - thanks for your help.
