Cherry problem

Does anyone know what this disease is please? Some of the cherries in my tree have gone orangey- yellow and leathery with brown spots. The green ones look like they are still good. As far as I know this is the first time this has happened. It looks similar to pocket plum (which has killed my plum tree) but can a cherry tree catch that?

    well, I've seen it happen lots, whether it is normal or not is another question. I have a few dwarf varieties and if I don't trim 1/3 of the flowers then the tree can't support the fruit it wants to produce and a lot withers away like that. A drought can make it worse. A tree a few doors down  that doesn't get pruned has got a few more dead cherries than last year.
