Firstly, your fruit does look a sweet cherry (Prunus avium), though there are other species that can bear a resemblance. Was this a wild or cultivated tree?

Secondly, it must be said that there are many cultivars of cherry (Prunus avium). Rare fruit growers and other hobbyists grow a variety of obscure cultivars. Of course, there are also many bird-planted cherry seedlings around that have no cultivar identity.

If we make the assumption that your cherry is one of the more popular and commonly available cultivars, then I would say it could be 'Royal Ann' (synonym: 'Queen Ann') or 'Rainier'. Another more recent "blonde" cultivar gaining in popularity is 'Blushing Gold'.

Nothing definitive, alas, but I hope this helps.

It was in a forest, so I'm assuming it was just brought by bird droppings. Thanks so much for your help
