    The yellow flowers look like lesser celandine and will disappear until next spring in a few weeks.
    Some close up photos would help.

    It could be black medic or lesser trefoil. Best to ferret under the stalks, gather them all together and pull firmly until the tap root comes out.

    Black Medick Or Trefoil. Easy to get rid of.
    Your lawn needs a feed, you can see the grass is in need and you need to check your mower blade as the grass tips are ripped rather than a nice slice and that will help prevent the light tinge effect.

    Here’s a quick video to help you find out if it’s Trefoil or Merdick.

    Trefoil.

    Folks may I offer a few pointers when trying to identify plants. As in this instance. Foliage is three part/leaved, so tre being the three factor, folia =foliage,
