Had a walk around today, unfortunately for me a farm I shoot regularly has put quite a few of its fields to grass for their sheep, as they had a major black grass problem. One of the newly sown grass fields has a lot of the plants pictured, yellow flower, it has rough prickly pointed leaves and a red stalk.

Two possibles...as above possibly charlock ( Sinapsis arvensis)   or Jack- by- the- hedge  (Alliaria officinalis)  strange it has flowers because both flower May through the summer. The flowers of both are very similar. If there are seed pods that might help identify it better.

Not until after the flowers!

Yeh Yeh Yeh !!!  I thought there might be some pods from previous flowers as both plants tend to progressively flower and set pods as they go on the same stem.. Strange there are flowers now if it is either of those two.

I would also go with charlock. Often found in rape fields where some people might think that the rape is flowering early. Plenty of it in the rape around here.
