Any other pics?

Hi Cazza,
With fungi ID it is often essential to have a picture of the underside of the cap, and a close up of the stem in order to get an identification. Where you have a cluster of mushrooms I'd suggest picking one (ensuring you get the base of the mushroom if possible) and taking a photo of that as well as them in situ.
Hope that's useful, Sarah

Underside of Fungi

Hi Sarah

I have attached a few photo's of the stem and underside of the fungus. Hope it helps.
