Hi, can anyone identify this wild plant, it has beans growing on it.  I'm curious if they are edible or poisonous?  Thanks in advance

    Picture is a bit blurry tweedsserver8gXZvBXP but it looks like common vetch.

    I think it's the seed pod of a Broom (Cytisus species) and is toxic.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Having seen the flower and now able to judge scale, I agree, vetch. :)
