A little mushroom on the HSS walk on Sat.17th Nov

It was also seen on the October walk, the foray to Stoodley Glen, but not identified then.
I think it's Hare's Foot Inkcap Coprinus lagopus. (Hares and rabbits are Lagomorphs.)

Both specimens were on high, open pasture, recently grazed.

It's said to be edible but not worthwhile. The cap's only up to about 4cm high (1.5 inches).

P.s. HSS stands for Halifax Scientific Society.
