Maybe they have a better alarm clock  ::) ;D

Honestly, I don't know. A guess is that your snowdrops are a pure species or an old variety, thus more stable than many newer variety spring bulbs.

I cycled down by the Canal+ thread site yesterday evening and there is a daffodil  blooming, alongside the remains of the sunflowers and the cyclamen. Photo to follow later....

It's January, for goodness sake!!!  :-[
