lacteus is quite quick once it gets going,, they're big wide bushes as well if you don't hedge them

I'll have a look at the baby C. lacteus tomorrow, there'squite a lot of seedlings out there 2/3 years old. I'll see what they look like.

I had simonsii in the hedge but it couldn't compete with the other plants and died, so I can't go and look at that. I have some that have never been IDd. I think they cross as well

Mow up the sycamore leaves Steve or use one of those sucky things that shreds as well, or put them through a shredder. That starts the breaking down process. I don't have much sycamore to deal with but field maple is much the same only smaller.

but the native field maple, Acer campestre is more attractive and doesn't get those nasty black spots on the leaves

I don't think 1 is lacteus.

The iris could be pseudocorus, it may be a water iris but it seeds and flowers in the most unlikely places

Hi jack, that's an orange tip.

The yellow ones are male Brimstones

Brown and speckly could have been a Speckled wood, I haven't seen one of those or an orange tip this year.
