Common woodland flowers: leaf ID

Here are some common woodland flowers I discovered today in Stanmer Park, Brighton. Unfortunately I could not find any in flower as we have had such cold weather, however I have included some important leaf ID tips. For help on identifying plants not in flower, refer to ‘The Vegetative Keys To Plants Not In Flower’ section of The Wildflower Key, by Francis Rose.
