Delphinium or weed?

I'm pretty sure these are weeds but they are growing where I expected delphiniums to reappear so I just wondered if anyone else knows for sure?

    Looks like it could be Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara). A wildflower but probably not the prettiest one image

    Definitely  not a Delphinium

    Nope - not delphinium.

    Easy enough to pull out when small. We have tons of it round here   image

    I'd say coltsfoot as well. Nice yellow flowers early on. image

    As it's being eaten by something, I would be inclined to leave it as a bait.

    Thank you for all the replys - much appreciated. It's starting to cover some of my intended plants so is coming out! It does look like Coltsfoot which is a new one on me but always good to know about.
