Is cotoneaster or cottoneaster wood safe as a perch?

Hi all,

Is cotoneaster or cottoneaster wood safe as a perch?
I'm a gardener and have cut a really good piece that looks perch worthy.
I'm new here so please excuse me if I have posted this in the wrong place.

I've never even heard of that wood, is it a UK tree?

It is, usually it can be found in car parks and the likes but also in gardens.

This bird likes it. Will mine?

if you google you can find a list of poisonous plants, there might be one on the forum somewhere, but my work internet keeps blocking pages today so i can't check. Have a look around
