Woods Mill Findings - Pink wildflower for identification

Post by jimmymac2 » Sun May 31, 2015 11:18 am

Can anyone help identify this wildflower? It was found growing in high grassland near woodland and I don't recall seeing anything like it. The pink flowers are very small and the leaves remind me of Buttercup leaves. Maybe a Geranium species? :?

Thanks Jenny! :D
I've never heard of this species before, do you know whether it's a common species or not?

Actually I think the NBN Gateway map speaks for itself:
