    Finding it difficult to tell tbh, my gut instinct tells me Spanish because the leaves look quite thick. This may help, and l am sure someone else will know for definite.

    Spanish ones are out earlier than English ones.  They are usual out in May in the Uk.

    Probably a hybrid. You do get occasional white native bluebells, but the bells are more slender and taper to a 'waist' before the petal tips curl strongly upwards. Those flowers look altogether too hefty, though they are only on one side of the stem, a native trait.
