Help please

I saw the leaves last year and returned last week expecting to see Colt's-foot flowers. Instead the leaves were still present alongside a single unopened Colt's-foot type flower.

I'm stumped. It still seems likely to be Colt's-foot or one or a closely related species like Butterbur, but don't all of these flower well before the leaves appear?

Quick off the mark

Thanks Tim,

Very quick ID while I was still writing my initial comment!

Glad someone else thinks it looks like colt's-foot - I'm just a bit surprised the leaves are out already!
