Think I found out: maybe the Prunus avium L., a native species, Wild cherry. Just slipped my mind, birds eat it with delight. So it is not a species on the run from some garden. It's wild. I too eat them. Name in my language: fågelbär ("bird berries")

That looks like a good match. Remember that all these cultivated fruit varieties were developed from wild ancestors like this one.
