    Welcome to the forums.
    Agreed...... 13 is too many plants to identify in one go!

    Far easier posted just 3-4 at a time.
    It is actually quite hard to work out the number and add an id...then go back to go next couple.

    @Borderline regarding 11, the fruit looks like Alder.

     11.  The fruits may look like Alder but the leaves plus catkins say Betula..a birch tree.

    4 is an Epilobium species.  Otherwise I agree with Dove.  It's a good thing we've got time on our hands!
