Had a few hours this afternoon and with the cold snap and snow I was hoping for some velvet shank mushrooms, and got super lucky after 5 mins of being in the woods.

Then came across this fluoro mess. IDs welcome!

Then got lucky with some grey oysters, unfortunately didn't take a pic on the tree but here's a pic of the ones in tubs, oysters on the right...

Then found a load of what at first glance looked like velvet shank, the stems were completely different, scaly with a sheath, and an obvious two tone cap, which I believe to be funeral bells...

Then this odd toadstool, just sat proud on his own, again IDs welcome!

Cheers Mary :) I left plenty on the tree too, which isn't so hard with oysters as they always seem to be in a bad way when I get to them!

They re-grow though, so might be worth your while nipping back and having a look again at some point.
There's a burnt out tree near here where a friend and I picked them for three years.

They do look kind of manky when they go over though.

Definitely, I have 4 fallen tree trunks that have produced oysters time and time again, but they had zero on today, this was on a standing dead trunk, only a couple hundred yards away, so I'll definitely be checking there again!
