 another mystery is a small red plant with red leaves quite similar in some respects to a bay leaf in shape a kind of oval. If no one guesses it I will upload a photo

Any idea's on these two

Not a dandelion, can't name it but definitely a weed

The way it comes out the ground looks dandelion-y but the rest of it doesn't. Would agree with nut.

Think it might be a  Hedge Mustard - have a look here and scroll down http://www.teagasc.ie/publications/2010/55/55_Guide_to_Identifying_Tillage_Weeds.pdf

I've been looking for a guide to weeds on arable land for ages - I knew there was one in existence - glad I've found it.

Bitter cress?

Dove's right, I couldn't remember the name but that's the one I was thinking of. It can grow quite tall and if it doesn't fall over makes a good dried decoration. But it's still a weed

Woohoo!!!! 

Bring on the one with small red leaves

Thanks for the guide I am still unconvinced thou, I think i will have to take more photo's. Or wait till some flowers they all seem pretty uniform in growth. There will be less questions thou thanks to the guide.
