Redshank

An easy one to find and recognise and a handy one at this time of year when a lot of plants are dying back

 
easy to identify with the close knit bunches of pinky white flowers
 
 
and the easy way to be sure is the black markings on the basal and lower leaves.
 
A good plant to start on if you want to eat wild foods as it doesn't taste green! as a matter of fact it's quite tasty and would be good in a salad although I've just eaten it as is.
Apparently it also helps stop diahorrea , however I haven't tried it for that so can't speak from experience..
