Looks more like Bush Vetch?

The colour, and overall look, doesn't seem right for V sativa (usually 1-3 flowers together and much brighter, almost pink flowers) - looks like Vicia sepium to me (muddy-looking purple flowers), although I'll admit that it doesn't look 'almost hairless' as the description for V sepium says. It's hard to see other key details from this photo - lovely picture though!
