Hi, I think it couldbe a species of Spirea, possibly Arguta, Derek.

I first thought of Callistemon. I know there is a yellow flowered variety but even though the leaves look similar, the actual shrub habit doesn't. It also looks a bit like Zauschnaria but that has red flowers.

Hi Badfish, forgot about the yellow flowers, so obviously not Spirea arguta :-) Derek.

If nobody knows you could show a picture of the flowers when they appear, which would make it easier. I can see why you thought willow but they don't have yellow flowers.
