Caper Spurge, I think.  Not to be confused with capers - these are poisonous.

There is no point in saving the seed.

Use the onions that have bolted in the kitchen, they will not store.

There are onion seeds that you can plant now which will give a nice crop of onions before the Autumn.  Have a look in the catalogues or on-line

You may get nice seed heads, depending on the variety.

They mainly get on the move on warm, wet nights. Rarely in bright sunshine.

bee or wasp?

Could it be a cockchafer or May Bug?  You can tell by their antennae which open out like a book.  They bumble about at this time of year and are harmless.  The destructive phase of their life is before the hatch, when they are in the soil.

You really will have a struggle to keep the slugs and snails away from them on the compost heap.

Help with Identification please

The square stems are very distinctive, so it's not stitchwort, or chickweed.

Definitely not woodruff.  If the OP lives near the sea, I would suggest Scurvy Grass.  Not a grass at all, common on road banks.
