Wildflower/weed ID please?

Hi all,
I have a few of these that have popped up in my wildflower area. I haven't seeded this year, so this is either a self-seed or a perennial, but I don't recognise it. The only thing that makes me think it is part of the wildflower mix is that I seem to have a few of them in the wildflower area, but not elsewhere in the garden. Any ideas, please?

    OK I'll try and answer this one myself! I think it might be a white campion? It does appear on the original species list for the wildflower seed that I sowed a couple of years ago, but I don't remember seeing it in bloom last year, or anything like this number/size of plants. If it is a perennial that really explodes in growth after a year or two, then that would explain it.

    I think you've got it!

    Yes, white campion ... great for pollinators, especially the night-flying ones.   :)
