i was trying to ID some wildflowers when i spotted this one.
It looks a bit like parsley or carrot but is VERY deep red all up the stems.

Hemlock springs to mind but when i look at pictures of that it's just blotchy with red not the deep red of this one.

Any ideas what it is - if it IS hemlock i need to remove it from near my animals and children but if it not a nasty then i can leave it for the wildlife.

It is on agricultural land quite close to a water filled ditch in the north west of england.
