How strange, I've never seen Blewit growing on a compost heap before. But I suppose if there was leaf litter containing the spores/mycelia, it might take hold.
There is leaf litter in the compost. Our guide book suggests that blewits are often found on compost heaps, just shows how experience and books don't always match up!
Blewits are frequently found on rotten straw left out by gamekeepers and dumped garden waste including lawnmower clippings. They also grow in deep leaf litter.
