I realise I'm sticking my neck out, but I'm only trying to help.

This does look like T. dubium, but the flowers on the lower left-hand head appear to be quite open, which is counter-indicative.

I can count 15 flowers in the largest head, and there may be more. This may be low for T. campestre but it's on the high side for T. dubium.

I did consider Medicago lupulina but, although there appear to be fine mucros on a couple of the leaves, most don't have them. One leaf has two such appendages which makes me think these are just hairs.

Dry.
