Fungal theme continues - Beech Knight, Tricholoma sciodes

With the rain that's been swamping everything the water levels are back up where they started so no wader action! On the other hand there's a surge in fungal fruiting with some Mycena captured and some Gymnopus sp. which I supposed was G.erythropus but which might not be. What is for sure is a lovely Beech Knight fungus which sadly seems mostly to have been chomped by something

From NBN this seems to be a species which has no VC85/Fife records:
