Foodplant questions?

Would I be correct about the vetch that the Narrow-bordered Five-spot Burnets were feeding on down Cromwell Bottoms being primarily Tufted Vetch, V. cracca?
And were the yellow flowers favoured by some specimens, Meadow Vetchling, Lathyrus pratensis, or Birdsfoot Trefoil, Lotus corniculatus?
The shots I have of the moths on yellow flowers, unfortunaely do not show the leaves of the plant for an easy i.d.
