Blaencaerau - last one -plants

 Finding this umbellifiers everywhere, but the leaves don't match anything in the books or on the British Wild Flowers website - it's driving me Crazy trying to find out what it is - comments welcome
Cotton Grass - there are quite a few species of Cotton Grass but I think this one is Eriophorum angustifolium, but not 100%

Not an Umbelifer Martyn, Common valerian, food plant of Valerian pug. The larvae feed on the flowers and rest by day on the stems underneath the flowers.
