Little Robin
Geranium purpureum

Without doubt the rarest plant on the Rodwell Trail, occuring in only a handful of sites in Dorset.

Along the edges of Wyke Cutting the plant is quite common, growing alongside the very similar Herb Robert (which has orange pollen instead of yellow).

Recently a new patch has appeared near Sandsfoot Halt and it has also appeared on Radipole Park Drive.

It seems to like cycle paths as it also grows on the Camel Trail near Padstow.
