    Does anyone know what plant this is? I have never seen one before. The flower is tiny, as you can see by the comparison with the small red rowan berries beside it.

    Could it be a small primula or polyanthus?

    I don't think so, the petals on this are too pointed. It resembles a tiny white star.

    It looks like Black Nightshade

    Have a look here at http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/black-nightshade

    Isn't Nightshade poisonous?
