yes, it isn't a mini-roundabout, but even if it's a roundabout is not
completely sure (there is all signs missing as far as I can see). The
difference between a roundabout and a circular road would be the right
of way: if who is in the circle has to wait for who enters the circle
it would be a normal street, if he had the right of way it would be a
roundabout (this doesn't make much sense anyway in this context,
because why should you remain in the circle if there is only one way

on which node? natural=tree and highway=roundabout on the same node?
