Our biodiversity report for this wood shows Rusty willow, Salix cinerea subsp. oleifolia. The last management plan gives Goat willow, Salix caprea, but no Rusty willow. (Both also include Salix fragilis but I don't think its this). It looks like Goat willow to me but I have very little knowledge on this subject. Very grateful for any hints on how to distinguish.
