Never seen anything like it. It'd not a cereal seed, but a fruit of some sort. 

If you zoom in you can clearly see the sepals at the top of the fruit.

100% it is not wheat. I have to admit I don't know what it is, but I agree with whom ever it was that suggested they come from a tree or shrub/bush. If you look closely many have still got the fresh stalk attached whereas others have obviously been on the ground for a while, the stalk having lost it's sheen and colour and some have chitted and grown a shoot. They could even be weed seeds of some sort; but I know it is not wheat.

not wheat or any cereal, not hempseed, not grape seed
