Prunus lusitanica /

I think this could be Prunus lusitanica, but that has large leaves. What do you think?

Now you mention it ...

... there are only two fruits, but they're on the end of a long spike, which is consistent with Prunus lusitanica, while Frangula alnus has fruits in small clusters in leaf axils.
