Meadow Vetchling is a scrambling plant with small yellow flowers on short stalks.  The leaves are small and eliptical - pairs of narrow leaflets have a tendril.  The seed pods are black when ripe and 2-4cm long.  It is a member of the pea family and is common throughout the British Isles.

It can be found on meadows, verges, scrub and woodland.

Meadow Vetchling is a nectar plant for bumblebees and other insects and is a larval food plant of the Wood White butterfly and Burnet moths.

It is difficult to show the plant as a whole as it grows through grass and other plants, but to give you a very rough idea, click here for a picture of a roadside verge where Agrimony (tall yellow spikes), Betony (purple flowers) and Meadow Vetchling (small yellow splodges!) can be seen.  It's very pretty.
