Cow Parsley

What I think is cow parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris, which was growing in a small wood.  That this is flowering in early February is an indication of the warmth of the winter we have been having. 

Unfortunately, the photos I took of the plant in situ were rather blurred so here I only show photos of a specimen that I took home with me. 

Here is a close-up of the flowers:

And of the leaves:
