What is eating my snowdrops?

Something is eating all my snowdrop flowers? Any idea what it could be?

Snowdrop flowers, like daffodil flowers, are often attacked during mild spells by snails. They feed at night and hide by day, although sometimes a small snail can be found tucked into a daffodil flower. Usually there is good cover nearby the damaged clump to allow the snails to hide, while clumps in the open may be unharmed.
