Birds foot-Trefoil

Also known as 'eggs and bacon' because of the yellow and orange hue of the pea-like flowers.

Although disagreeable to humans, bird's-foot trefoil is an important source of food for other creatures. Pollinating insects find it a perfect source of nectar and it is used as a forage plant for livestock. The 'bird's-foot' of its name refers to the shape of its seed pods. Image © Laurie Campbell.
