Don't suppose you have photos

Don't suppose you have photos of the underside?
Possibly a Pluteus but could also be a Melanoleuca.

same thought

I was thinking Pluteus but as Flaxton has mentioned you really need photos of the gills and stem also was it growing out of the wood and if so wood type would help too.

Sorry flaxton, I was loathe to pull up the only specimen at this sight.

Thanks for the tentative identifications, I'll make a note of them.

low

If you hold the camera at ground level facing the gills it is possible to photograph without removing the fungi also a small mirror can be used.

Useful tips...

Useful tips; will include a mirror on future walks.

I am fairly certain that the tree was a dead alder, which I think you will not find inconsistent with what is shown in the photo.
