And mine, but its a bit early isn't it, specially as its so cold. If it is elder, those flowers should flatten out into the typical elder flowers.

Thankyou This trees are on my daily walk so I shall keep taking photos of their progress growth.

I think that the leaves are too serated and too long and narrow for the common elder. However, there are many different species of Sambucus and it could be one of these.

Bulba this is growing on one of our lovely walks in our area.

I think if you google this link you will see the Red Elderberry Tree (Sambucus racemosa) it has a flower head which is quite different to the usual flat heads we would expect on our native trees. See what you think.
