Tormentil at the top, there are various species - in Rosacae. Potentilla sp.

The mint-like leaves don't seem to bearing water mint flowers. Perhaps a hiybrd.Did it smell of mint? Garden varieties often grow in the wild where they have been thrown out.

Yes, think the bottom one is redshank. It often has a dark spot in the middle of each leaf, but also quite often dosn't. In th bistort the dock pudding plant - family.
