Identification doubt

If it wasn't for the creamy/white anthers I would have said this was H.x massartiana (broadish leaves, florets spiralling round stem).
I do not think is a 'pure' H.non-scripta.
Comments appreciated.

It is in a nature reserve

It is in a nature reserve about 1km from the nearest gardens and seems like semi-natural woodland. Leaves are only 20mm wide. The leaves have been extensively eaten and I saw a Roe Deer which may be responsible.
