Mugdock at the Beginning of May

Wild Raspberry Flowers : Bluebells :
Anyone know what these small white flowers are called ?
Here are some of the plant and wildlife sitings from Mugdock Country Park this morning. Everything is beginning to grow after the long, harsh winter that we had this year. I'm not sure what all these plants are called so please suggest names if you recognise them. We still have some more cold weather expected this weekend though so I am not sure how this will affect the plants and wildlife.

Swans on Mugdock LochWater plants flowering - does anyone have any ideas what they are?
A yellow flower with heart shaped leaves - any ideas what they are?
Not a native plant but the flowers are looking lovely.
