Thanks, I wasn't brave enough to make the final identification.

Some very hard

Don't worry some are really hard to tell the difference, I struggle with ragwort's,grasses and never seem to get mosses right.I think people forget it is a very vast subject and we can never know it all.On the positive side at least you knew it was a Ragwort and not Hoary.
