Two plants

It is two different plants top two need to be put on as a separate observation as it makes it less complicated when you get an ID.

Second plant

Maybe Starry Saxifrage but cannot get a clear enough picture of the leaves to be certain.

eyebright and heath bedstraw

thanks to you all. I wasn't sure if there were two species when I took the photo.

interestingly I had eyebright identified earlier on photo 4052 taken in Dolwydellan forest at a much lower altitude, which had a bigger flower, so this one seems to be a mountain dwarf variety.

Lets not forget the third

Lets not forget the third plant (with the palmate leaf) which is Alchemilla alpina (Alpine Lady's-mantle)

OK, not forgotten, but I knew that one anyway, I see it everywhere on mountains although not often flowering. Leaves instantly recognisale though.
