It could be a cherry plum tree as they are fruiting at this time of year.
I think it's a bullace.

Yes mirabelle or cherry plum. They make sensational jam, especially if you use the tarter, firmer less ripe ones. Nothing like it in the shops. You need to de-stone them but can use an olive/cherry pitter before boiling. Alternatively, boil without pitting and fish out the stones.
Better than our crab apple tree then
