Species with which Hazel (Corylus) interacts

Corylus avellana

Outrageously bad photo, Heathboy! But the catkins and the hairiness of the tip of the branch suggest common Hazel.

To be sure, perhaps you could get us a photo of a single leaf, facing the camera, which would show the shape of the leaf (if symmetrical and heart-shaped, looking good for Hazel) and perhaps you could check the area around it: you rarely get one Hazel all alone, there are normally a group of smaller ones around it.

Also, they are often found growing as multi-stemmed trees, as they re-grow well after coppicing, either deliberately by hedge-cutters, or accidentally by council workmen.
