Tree seedling?

Found this when weeding and potted in case it's  interesting. 
Stem looks as if it will go woody.

In London. Keen but lazy.

    Have a look at the trees in your street.  I expect it'll want to grow up to be a London plane tree or similar.

    It could be London plane. We have those locally but they're pruned by the council into bog brushes. The seedling was near a bird feeder so maybe it was a gift.
    It's probably academic now as I think I damaged the roots getting it out and much as I love them if left to grow naturally, I haven't the space😊
    Thanks @Obelixx

    It might be Viburnum Opulus, Guelder Rose.

    Will keep it for a while and see. So long as I haven't killed it already😒
    @Borderline
    PS just had a Google. The leaves are very similar.

    That would certainly be better than a plane tree.

    Looking again, I thought it looked a bit like a ribes. I hope not. @Obelixx
