Many thanks to all for the IDs; I don't think I would have come to that conclusion unaided, from the shape of the flower buds as shown in the photos, but having been pointed in the right direction, I agree that Sticky Mouse Ear, with its tight collection of flowers at the top of the stem and hairy stem, leaves and sepals, is the correct ID.
