How are you arriving at Sub species ? I could not be certain if it was cultivated or wild .
There are host of sub species Medicago sativa subsp. ambigua (Trautv.) Tutin
Medicago sativa subsp. microcarpa Urban
Medicago sativa subsp. sativa L.
Medicago sativa subsp. varia (T. Martyn) Arcang
I am not even sure if they are specific to that region ? Thought it best to go only to M sativa
Whats Happening ???

Many thanks Wildlife Ranger and ophrys for input and suggestions. Lucerne - of course... Have only really noticed it in whole crops before at a distance. As for the subspecies question... I'll steer clear of that. The area is was growing in tends to be a very traditional hay meadow zone from what I've seen, with no cultivated crops grown that I've noticed, so maybe it's more likely a wild plant, but it is possible that lucerne was once cultivated there or nearby.
