It appears to key out as Marsh stitchwort in the new collins flower guide but i have my doubts about this ID, on the other hand I have not found a better bet.

Picture is not good enough

Picture is not good enough for a definite id, you need to show typical foliage and an open flower so stamens etc. can be seen

Ornithogalum pyrenaicum?

Surely not a stitchwort at all? Although I agree the photo is not entirely clear it looks exactly like Ornithogalum pyrenaicum to me, although O. umbellatum is possible. Not able to separate on this image.

Ornithogalum umbellatum

I've had a good id of Ornithogalum pyrenaicum on an observation of mine. There is a more recent id of Ornithogalum umbellatum that looks very like the one here.
