Actually I am not sure about

Actually I am not sure about this could be greater birds foot trefoil as its clearly growing very well in a wet place which puts it in greater rather than common birds foot trefoil territory. They can be tricky to tell apart. Suggest going back to the place with a flora to check all characters if you are not sure.
