Golden Scalycap

Golden Scalycap (Pholiota aurivella)

My reference books describe this species as occasional and more frequent in the South. I find these annually around the woods in Morpeth. The most spectacular ones grow at the bottom of someones garden beside Morpeth Common at the foot of a Beech stump. A bit of sunshine would do this lovely species justice. Other things around Morpeth have been Speckled Wood butterflies in large numbers on almost every bit of woodland edge and Kingfisher(s) at Oliver's Mill and Oldgate first sighting on the river in Morpeth for nearly 2 years.
