There's one waterlily out - bottom left quarter of the pic, directly under the leaf at the tip of the overhanging branch 

compost advice

Yes, but if you stir up the compost regularly they should stop growing, especially when the decomposition really gets going.

We get quite a few twigs on the lawn below our big ash trees - we put it down to portly wood pigeons

A tiny plant ID, and a quick question about roses.

I'd dig it up with plenty of the soil around it, being careful not to damage the very fine roots, and pop it in a pot.  If it's a tree or shrub that grows outside, it'll be fine left outside in a sheltered corner. Just don't let it dry out - on the other hand, don't overwater it, especially in the winter.

I think Nut means that the tree seedling is likely to have come from seed from a nearby tree - what trees have you growing nearby?

No idea about the seedling - you could try potting it up if you're really curious.

Is the rose new?  It looks to me as if the paler roses were yellow (there's yellow at the base of the central petals) and they've faded in bright sunlight.
