A walk on the wild side

I thought you may be interested in our walk this afternoon. We take so much for granted here, the sea views, the wild plants and the ruggedness of the coast. Can you help us to name some of the plants and the fruit?
The pink flowered plant is believed to be Polygala Myrtifolia from S. Africa.
The island is Jethou with one main house and a harbour

Lovely pictures there.
Picture 1 looks like a Medlar tree.
Picture 2, you are correct, it looks like Polygala Myrtifolia
Picture 4 could be Symphoricarpos, Snowberry Shrub
Picture 8 looks like Persicaria Capitata.
Beautiful pictures, GD...the one with the rainbow is very special
Also, I've put you some links for the feeders and trays on the Feeding the Birds thread.
Picutre 7 could be Corydalis, but not sure which one.
Wow, you never cease to amaze me with your wealth of plant names - I am very grateful for all your invaluable help once again. It was rough out there, but I am so glad we went out - it was certainly invigorating and blew the cobwebs away and I learned a few plant names too!
Thanks Sheps, I will take a look.
The fern is possibly Polypodium vulgare , our native 'Polypody'
PS The Corydalis may be C. integra ; most likely a garden escapee . (Wish some would find its way into mine ! ).
Hello Guernsey Donkey2,
Your rainbow picture is a real keeper, I love it!
Gorgeous photos GD - I also love the rainbow one. What's not to like about a rainbow pic!
You should put some of those on the camera thread too.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
7. Not Corydalis but Fumaria sp
Maybe Fumaria capreolata.
Nice selection of plants.
