Evergreen shrub ID


These days I walked upon a bush/small tree which intrigued me because  it's midwinter and it is green like in summer, leaves are strong and  small pups begin to be developed. Next along an railroad were plenty of  them.
I've searched to proper identify this but failed. So, if you are so  kind, could somebody help me to identify this evergreen ? I know it's  harder because I hadn't my camera with me, and took only this sample.  Maybe I'm lucky.
Thank you a lot.

    Strangely perplexing!


    Please tell where your found these shrubs.


    Assuming, for now, it is in the UK, my thoughts go to:

    - Cornus mas (Cornelian cherry, globular buds, but it is deciduous)

    - Cornus sanguinea (dogwood, not quite there)

    - Ligustrum (various species of privet, leaves not flat enough, amongst other things)

    - Viburnum (various species, some evergreen, but I can't think of one with a matching leaf)

    - Rhamnus cathartica (not quite, deciduous)

    - Gaultheria (...nah)



    I'm going to kick myself when we get the ID!

    (Fred - are you there?)


    If you are not in the UK, please tell us!
