Yellow plants

Don't seem to have terminal spikes on the leaflets, so probably Trifolium dubium.

small yellow plants

The small yellow plants are either a medick (Medicago) or one of the yellow trefoils (Trifolium pro parte) - I'd need to see fruits and foliage to be sure of an identity, but there may be enough of a fruit visible to call it as lesser trefoil (Trifolium dubium).

I agree with the above comments. Fairly sure they are T. dubium.
