The eye of the tiger

OK, I made a mistake. I originally labelled this fungus as Earthfan Thelephora terrestris a few days ago after a field trip to Graffham Common but it's actually Tiger's-eye Coltricia perennis. We did see both species in fact, although with hindsight they look nothing like each other! I also saw Rosy Spike Gomphidius roseus but I dismissed it at the time as a funny looking Russula.

A friend in Brighton has found an oil beetle in a local cemetery today so I am going to meet him first thing and see if we can relocate it, how exciting, watch this space!
