At first glance I would have said that was a pignut flower.
Totally wrong leaf shape to be pignut

My first thought is pignut, and I found my first ones yesterday. It's the right time of year, right leaf shape, its small and delicate enough.

I think wild carrot gets a kind of spikey looking crown around the flower head. That probably makes no sense without pictures


Edit: the spikey crown is this bit hanging under the flower head on wild carrot;

I know I sound like a broken record - but please be very careful identifying the umbellifers!

Here's a summary table that I put together a couple of years back now. The typing in italics defines any diagnostic characteristics for that species.

Flower structure and leaves, plus the environment described all point towards pignut, but I say this with no certainty. I'm struggling to see what else it could be though. What sort of size was it? It's certainly not wild carrot. In any case, don't eat it.
