Finally came across this species. Have spent an age looking through Lesser Stitchwort hoping to find Stellaria palustris and when you do you know. Its flowers are larger and thicker set. Its bracts have a green midrib and the overall plant has a bluey green colour.
As is often the case, I found the plant again at a different site just a week or so later, in a cleared area of reeds, managed for Bitterns.
