Some very nice photos Derek, but I'm sure you're aware that this is a very challenging group, even with a specimen. Identification from photos alone is a big ask and my mycological knowledge is very limited, so I'll pass...
As Barry says, it is very difficult to get an accurate id from a photo, particularly if the specimens are worn or aged. So, some of these suggestions are tentative:Photo 1: It's an inkcap, it looks quite small and could be Coprinellus disseminatus (Fairy Inkcap).Photo 2: Looks like aged Armillaria mellea (Honey Fungus). This is a very common species which is often very confusing.Photo 3: These are old specimens (caps seem to have darkened in colour) which could be Kuehneromyces mutabilis (Sheathed Woodtuft)Photo 4: ???Photo 5: This is Armillaria mellea again.Photo 6: And again!Photo 7: Definitely a Hygrocybe and possibly H. cantharellus. If it is, it should have decurrent gills, but that can't be verified in the photograph. So, this is a very tentative id.Photo 8: Can't identify this one, but it seems to have dark coloured gills and it doesn't look like a Mycena to me.
Great pictures... I am always amazed to see the many different aspects of the honey fungus.
