Autumn sun

Near the start of my walk, an apple tree, heavy with fruit this year, provides me with a refreshing chew.

Two similar plants caught my eye today. Both dandelion like but very different. The first is tall and branched and has colonised the footpath  areas quite profusely. The second is low growing and occurs amid the grass in the open field.

My best guesses at identification are

Bristly Ox-tongue                                       and                                          Autumn Hawkbit    

(But I'm open to suggestions via the comment form.)

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
