Thanks to some prompting from a friend at Kew, confirmed that the Wild Clary was in fact a slightly hairless Hedge Woundwort

The Wild Clary is a parituclarly good find Mike. Only one record for recent times in GM. A further two records date back to before 1930.

Birdsfoot Trefoil and Wild Clary coming into flower on Lansdowne Road near the recycling plant. There seems to have been a good array of 'common weeds of cultivation' on the earth bank at this end.

Hot on the heels of the first Butterfly, the first Caterpillar of the year for me; a large yelloe Underwing on Spencer Street.

As usual with this species, moving faily quickly, but on the pavement, where it could easily get squished. R-directed to the adjacent grass verge
