Yep - fallen Birch.

First I've seen this year, but I always know that Winter's here when these can be found.

Sarcoscypha austriaca - Scarlet Elf Cup (along with its orange variant) - just beginning to appear: -

Very nice Mike, excellent photos as ever.

Note to self to check out my local spots, not that I have ever seen the "orange" variant

Found on 19th Nov in Hertfordshire, Blushing Bracket, Daedaleopsis confragosa var tricolour. Note the gills instead of the slotted pores of the standard variety.

Snap! Flammulina velutipes - Velvet Shank

Did you do the microscopy? :D
My spores are a little wide, but length rules out F.elastica.
Was growing about 7ft up a living tree (most likely Sycamore)

Pipe club, Macrotyphula var contorta, I think. Growing on a fallen twig of a broadleaf tree rather than on soil, which gave me the lead.

Hi Adam,

For the last five years or so, it has fruited on this same tree, some years much more to be seen than others.
(This year seems to be a good year - the photo shows just one of many clusters presently showing on that tree!).
I haven't done microscopy on this year's fruitings, but I did do it from those on the same tree three years ago.
The spore average length fell within the expected range for F.velutipes, and definitely too short for F.elastica.

Regards,
Mike.
