Sorry John, but I find it impossible to provide C & C on a set of 15 images all in one post. I wasn't sure what sort of feedback you were looking for.

The bird is probably one the legendary Cider Dippers that can often be found staggering around Cornish villages.
The only other thing I can think of is a juvenile Wheatear. This spell of mild weather is delaying some migratory species by a few weeks.
And you probably already know that the mushroom is a Parasol Mushroom. They are also appearing a little later this year.

Thanks both. Not to worry Donald- I realised that 15 were too many for any meaningful CC ,I still feel grotty and just thought I'd post them for viewing. I think the village one (daylight) is pretty flawed if there's anything sticking out like a sore thumb with any of them that would be useful, thanks... we go twice a year so I could right any wrongs at the same locations.
Geoff..Well, a wheatear. I think you're right because there were a couple of adult wheatears behind me, I looked hard at them and this bird but the colouring was different-more of that rusty red but as you'll know colours change not only from juvenile to adult but year 1 and two and winter and summer-I think to ID a bird can be quite difficult,unless it's obvious and takes a lot of experience .. if you google juvenile wheatear 'images' (I've just done it)the 4th. one matches well-the url for these googled images is very long so I won't post it but I'll settle for a juvenile wheatear having looked at the cider dipper-there's only a couple of images of this bird the rest of the page is about cider drinking lol. Thanks
