Amongst a group of Goat Willow (Salix caprea) which had obvious greyish, furry leaves, I found one tree of very similar habit with bright green, shiny leaves. It's catkins will appear after the leaves (one can be seen beginning to appear in the photo.) The trees are all growing with their feet in the edge of a loch. Is this Bay Willow (Salix pentandra)?
