Yellowish green sedge in woodland - any idea which one?

Description:

In dampish woodland. Distinctly yellowish-green leaves. Only just beginning to flower, so quite likely not possible to identify it, but it looked totally different to all the sedges I've seen so far this year.

Thank you for the id.

I can see it now - pic in one book wasn't very helpful (and keying sedges is tricky, but I shall go on trying - I think mature plants are probably better to start on, as some features didn't fit too well with the young leaves)
