I am not sure what this plant is, and as it is still in bud it is difficult to describe. It was growing in a damp area and is an upright plant with a terminal umbel of small pink flowers. Although still in bud, the flowers appear to be about 5mm across with purple stamens. The corolla is funnel-shaped and 5-lobed. Leaves lanceolate and in pairs - sorry about the blurry picture - I was trying to stay on the path and not trample the area.
