Hi Ian - thank you again for a second identification.

Have updated this one too.

I think both Fool's water-cress and Water-cress is present in this location and that's why there are two different types of flowers. Would you agree? I got confused when I read that Fool's water-cress also has flowers around stem and thought that perhaps they could be slightly different to those in the clusters.
