I had,

A good long hard look at this picture and think its this fungi as two or three of the arms looked to be thicker than the more slender golden spindles, have you any more photos of it? I hope this is helpful.

More pictures

Thanks.If you can tell me what characteristics you need to see I'll take some more,if the sheep have not trodden on them.There are clusters of these Yellow Clubs but there are also the same sort of fungi in singles or pairs,are these likely to be the same?

might be the same, just different stages in the growth of the fungi. Like fairy rings, lots of different sizes, and ages. Other fungi of a similar look could be, cordyceps militaris, clavulinopsis luteoalba and maybe clavulinopsis fusiformis (golden spindles) common. Maybe enter these names into ispot and you should see something like in your photos.
They all grow in short grass, and I have no information on taste or smell.
I hope this is helpful.
