What is the name of this plant?

Bedfordshire, United Kingdom Gb

I am sure it is a bulb, its flowering at the moment. It has flowers like a hyacinth but not so many. I have looked in several books and it looks like a striped squill (puschkinia scilloides, but according to my book they are blue and white. This one is green and white.




I believe it's ornithogalum nutans - I posted a picture of it a couple of weeks ago

I grew some puschkinia for the 1st time this year and I called them 'Stripy Pyjama' plants as they look like stripy pyjamas! Definately blue and white though.
