Another possibility might be

Another possibility might be a Collybia but check for those cones to confirm the Strobilurus.

Strobiluris MUST be growing

Strobiluris MUST be growing from a cone but growing from a cone does not exclude Collybia. This does look like typical Collybia.

Was Norway Spruce

There were Norway spruce next to it and a well rotted one under it but I was not 100% that it was attatched but no other type of cone there.I do have a picture of some fungi emerging right next to it on a Norway spruce so will attatch it

Have agreed with Strobilurus

Have agreed with Strobilurus now. Cone and twigs looks like spruce, perhaps Picea abies.
