Can anyone identify this weed???

Yes, Geranium endressii or Geranium x oxonianum. Bit of a thug in my garden!

Not sure if it's the same as the first photos though - it doesn't have thin roots, it has thick red-brown woody rhizomes.

Tom, try posting on iSpot , in the Invertebrates section. There will be an expert along to help you very soon. I find it really useful!

I wrote a guide for a local group, see if that helps:

If you are a beginner, I would recommend avoiding the rescue chickens and getting some healthy hybrids from a breeder. Rescue chickens can be rewarding, but do take extra care and attention and have their own problems. However, don't let me put you off, any chickens are better than none! They are normally very little trouble, I take food and water to mine in the mornings and shut them up at night. They have the run of a small paddock, I don't let them near the cultivated part of the garden. My neighbour is happy to look after them when I go away in return for the eggs!

Flowering currant? Is it herbaceous, or a shrub?

To upload a photo, just click on the tree icon, choose Your Computer, browse to the photo you want and click on Upload. Can't recognise your trees from the description - sorry!

Are you sure it's cypress spurge? The usual one to find in a wood would be Wood Spurge, Euphorbia amygdaloides. Cypress spurge is not a British wild plant, just a fairly rare garden escape. Wood spurge is also a bit invasive, but quite easy to pull out.
