Thank's

Thank's for the confirmation as I was rather unsure,I had thought of changing but it suggested that it was dry conditions so ruled it out.There was a large amount in flower and maybe I should have took more notice of the plant than the habitat.

Very damp

It was in standing water with sphagnum moss I noticed that the leaves were not that green either,I have never seen it grow here before,but there are lot's of new plants emerging since the wood was felled.I will have a look at your account on BSBI plant crib.
