Wild Daffodils

I think these daffodils are a cultivar as opposed to the true Wild Daffodil. In the 2 close up views, the flowers are fairly uniform in colour and distinctly yellow. The more distant shot shows slightly paler flowers, but their provenance is clouded by the cyclamen leaves which suggest someone has been planting in the wood. The foliage in all 3 pictures is very green, whereas the wild leaves are a duller greyish green.
