Came across these cool looking snowdrops and had a look online to try and identify them but couldn't really see anything which matched them completely. Anyone got any ideas what their variety is?

Dont think anyone knows, or are too busy too look at the moment, perhaps some one will take a look tomorrow.

Had a look too, Dave, and couldn't find one the same. It looks like it might be a pretty rare one, so if you can get hold of one, grab it!

Dave, are they wild or cultivated?  If wild then they could be an un-named hybid of one of the more common types (see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFrwMt5teVw).  If cultivated then have a look here http://www.judyssnowdrops.co.uk/Plant_Profiles/plant_profiles.htm

Unless of course those are the sites you've already looked at

They are wild but grow on our land so I can get access to them I had a go at identifying them using this http://www.bsbi.org.uk/Snowdrop_identification.pdf but the only one which looked similar was one in the oddities and rarities section so maybe it is a hybrid.
