Evergreen plant ID

There is a big one of these in our garden…   but I just wondered what this small one was… is it a seed that has grown? Overall what is it?

    Prunus laurocerasus ... Cherry laurel. Often used as a hedging plant. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    It could be a little present from a bird.

    They get rather large @jamesharcourt , so you may want to remove it, unless you like a bit of pruning now and again...  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Thanks all.  I think is see the "parent" plant nearby too, which also looks unintentional and is quite tall / leggy in deep shade.
