Bolete

Another fungus species this morning.  Fungi are traditionally tricky to identify and this one proved to be equally so - for me anyway.  Growing in the grassy meadow of Pewit Carr, close to the lake and the Birches and Willows surrounding it, it is certainly one of the Bolete family.  Judging by it's size - it was a good 8" tall - I think it is a Birch Bolete (Leccinum scabrum).
One from a couple of days ago too, this time, I think it's a Brown Roll-Rim (Paxillus involutus).  Growing at the base of a Birch tree - so many of them do - it was quite impressive sight.
