Faklse Chanterelles?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Not particularly yellow but I found references to Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca var. pallida which has the white gills with tawny stem
Found in the grounds of a former mansion in NW Leicestershire which is mixed woodland on a wide grassy path .
Otherwise I was looking at Millers and considering that underside wise they look like the copper spike while obviously not being that.
Hmm now considering Mild milkcap given the contrast between stalk and gills with a possible birch milkcap

I think this is Clitocybe gibba.
