Greater

The height does not preclude corniculatus, which can be over a foot tall, the if growing through vegetation. I can't see presence of hairs, either...but the jizz looks right and there look to be many flowers in each head.

Greater Bird's -foot -trefoil

Thanks for correction to my spelling, GB.

Ophrys - thanks for comments. What's 'jizz', please?
Thanks
Pam.

Jizz

Just the general appearance of the plant. It's a term used a lot in identifying birds, where a quick idea of the species can be gained from its general shape and habit.

Thanks for that. Don't know when it'll come in handy, but I'm sure it will!
