The Blusher (Amanita rubescens).
Birch Polypore or Razorstrop Fungus (Piptoporus betulinus).
This was our first record of a Piptoporus and Oliver was fascinated by it’s texture, as it was very rubbery and smooth.
An unidentified Coprinus species, growing on dung.
A collection of some of our edible finds of the day. Species included Amethyst Deceiver (Laccaria amethystina), Meadow Waxcap (Hygrocybe pratensis) and a Parrot Waxcap (Hygrocybe psittacina). Photo courtesy of Steve Blacksmith.

Lastly a really awful photo of maybe a Yellow Club (Clavulinopsis helvola) or possibly Apricot Club (Clavulinopsis luteoalba).
