Plant Indentification

Hi, could anybody help me find out what kind of plant this is? I found it in Mallorca in the mountains, it seems to be some kind of bush. It was very "thick" and adapted to the wind. Thank you very much!

    Not sure, but it could be the Balearic Prunus Spinosa (Blackthorn). Has a dense, low-growing habit. It gets seriously munched on by mountain goats so it doesn’t grow like the usual shrub/small tree. 
    Mountainous Northern Catalunya, Spain. Hot summers, cold winters.
