Found this cheery plant in flower today at Filnore near the steps up from the footbridge.
It's a false oxlip. The true oxlip is a different species confined to East Anglia but our falsie is a naturally occuring hybrid between a primrose and a cowslip, both of which grow at Filnore. The flowers are smaller than a primrose but larger than a cowslip.
