Found on the edge of woodland bordering agricultural land.
No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
Looks like a remnant of a crop.
The green and white striped florets reminded me of Phalaris canariensis, so I was wondering whether it was one of the other species of Phalaris. (Obviously not Phalaris arundinacea, and I'm not convinced by any of the others - Phalaris aquatica looked closest.
Is the area used for pheasant/game shooting - Some species of Phalaris are grown as are Millets (most however have branched flower heads)
There is a book called something like "A field guide to crops plants" that might help
