Unidentified tree

Any ideas what tree this is? I know most of my native trees but I don't 'think' this is? It looks like a tree Monty was planting the other week image

    Thank you Dove...now I can give it a name other than 'the tree with the white blossom' image

    Good for wildlife too Fishy, with berries for the birds.  You can try them too - they're edible, but I've never tasted one. image

    Oh yes the bees love the blossom. I think I'll leave the berries for the birds though Dove image

    The berries are really tasty a bit like a sweet blueberry. Mind getting to eat them is a problem as the birds usually devour them first.  We were lucky last summer as picked quite a few to eat.

    I've never yet seen a berry on mine in 30 years, but I knew it had them, as it was a present from a birdimage

    Are they happy on dry alkaline soil? I fancy one of those but I've seen the looking yellow and depressed in some gardens

    A friend had one in an alkaline garden but I wouldn't call hers dry - near the Broads. There's a fabulous one in Reydon just inland from Southwold, fairly free-draining there.
