Buckthorn?

Our west facing woody hill is full of this. Hoping it's not the dreaded buckthorn.

It is hard to tell from just one leaf but that leaf does look like buckthorn. Please read through all the information in this link and compare what you are seeing. If it is buckthorn, you need to remove it ASAP because it will only spread. https://landscape-restoration.com/how-to-identify-buckthorn-in-your-woodland/
