Just 3 more ...

St John's-wort

Easy peasy ... well not so. Look in the Collins Guide and there are several species so it took sometime to convince myself of this ID.

Flowers >2cm

Stem with 2 ridges (one shown here)

Leaves glandular

Petals > 2x length of sepals

Translucent gands 

Perforate St John's-wort
(Hypericum perforatum)
I hope  ;)

The next two just for fun.
Wild Carrot
(Daucus carota ssp carota)
I lve the fact that the central flower is usually red unlike the rest.

Wild Teasel
(Dipsacus fullonum)
