I wonder if anyone can tell me what these trees are? They have extremely bright green foliage and are very attractive at this time of year. I have googled them but without success.

I'm arriving back tomorrow and will look,but by the sound of the very bright foliage it sounds as though they are Robinias/

My neighbour has a direct view on these trees where magpies are currently nesting. As they followed their own private springwatch last Friday, they noticed that one young fell to the ground, maybe trying to fly off but broke its wing. The RSPCA came but could not do anything so they decided to release it, hoping the parents (or foxes/cats) would take care of it. No sign of it since.
