Surrey365; Day 20. Mystery plant!

I was walking along the river today and spotted this curious plant. It reminded me of a ‘walking’ or Egyptian Onion I once had. The flowers form bulbils, which form more flowers. I think it’s an allium (onions, garlic), or possibly a lily, but I can’t find it in my wild flower books so assume it’s a non-native. I’d love it if anyone could enlighten me as to what it is!

Updated: Nick Strugnell on my Facebook page has enlightened me as to the ID… it’s a Few Flowered Garlic, Allium paradoxum. ๐Ÿ™‚
