In this picture you can clearly see the cells in the middle of the leaf are very different from the rest. Rather like a tower block of elongated cells running to halfway up the leaf.

These appear colourless under a hand lens in the field.

I think this is Racomitrun lanuginosum when it is wet. In striking contrast to when dry.

Apologies this is the one I thought I was looking at but I seem to have photographed something quite different. And not the best photograph either.

So

Definitely need to go back here with a different lens set up.

This one is more likely a Tritomaria Sp either Cut/Large Cut Notchwort (Tritomaria exsecta/exsectiformis)

Wasp Spider egg sac

GramboroughHillWaspSpider250821-3

Nobody is quite sure why the zig zag pattern is present except possible to attract insects.

By it's small size this is probably a male.

Egg sac was quite difficult to spot in the grass. This one is still open.
It less than three feet away from the presumed female below.

GramboroughHillWaspSpider250821-6

GramboroughHillWaspSpider250821-8

This one is quite large so it's probably a female.

The web looks like its hung over manipulated depression in the grass.

GramboroughHillWaspSpider250821-12

This one was on a web about three feet away, was much smaller than the one above so presumed to be a male.

Ectemnius Sp

This has a silvery face thus not E cavifrons. The other suggestions were E literatus or E cephalotes.

Thanks to Tim Strudwick for comments.

So is there enough information in the photographs to do it.

The closest I could come was this top picture from Steven Falk's Flicker Album for Hogweed Fly Fox ♂︎ (Ectemnius literatus)

Common Furrow Bee (Lasioglossum calceatum) Male & Female ?

This a dark form male, pale mark on the clypeus. The tarsi and end of each tibia are pale/yellow.

Well again. Not quite

Hard to say but I think these are all male Lasioglossum leucozonium, as the tips of the tarsi (segments 2 – 5) are quite dark.
The two together are both males because their basi-tarsi are white.
