What is this plant please

A small white flower with 4 petals and each petal about 3mm long. The plant seems to be six inches high growing in a wettish South Wales garden, Heavy clay. The flower head about size of a small finger nail. Many thanks, Mary

    Sorry, @maryred Impossible to identify from such a poor photo. Could you try again, after clearing up the ground from any other leaf, etc. not belonging to the plant to ID? Thanks.
    A wild guess: Cardamine pratensis (cuckooflower, lady's smock, mayflower, or milkmaids).
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Thanks for getting back.It was my first time putting photos up and it took ages. Anyway I have found out they are cleavers. I just pull them out when I see them as they get everywhere. I don't mind them in the grass!
