Unknown plant

Plant found in woodland set in urban areas. Intriguingly, there are always earwigs sheltering in the folds of the uppermost leaves. Can anyone recommend a plant id book (with photos) with a key a novice can use with a bit of effort? What you see is this season's growth. Many thanks!

Flower Books

I've found that 'Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland' by Fitter and Blamey to be very useful. Also, 'The Wild Flower Key' by Francis Rose, also useful. Both shouls be available from Amazon.
