Took this photo through a monocular with the flash on so I apologize for the terrible quality. Would appreciate some pointers. Bark is smooth. Thank you!

It looks like Aesculus hippocastanum...common name Horse chestnut...a conker tree.
Very soon the leaves will open fully and later the flower in the centre will expand.

In winter before the buds burst they are sticky.
