Not that I doubt your ID but I don't think there is enough here to allow me to confidently agree it is a hawthorn (and a particular species of hawthorn).
Fair enough David, to be honest i was kind of just trying out the association thing.. Perhaps i should just remove it?
but obviously some of the botany focused people on iSpot will start to find it annoying if too many plant entries are put on where they have only been added to support an association and where information/pictures to allow ID of the plant is not included.
