New to fungi

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.

I'm relatively new to mushroom foraging, know some of the more common ones but still got a long way to go, have a few pics of unidentified mushrooms from my last trip to the wood and was wondering if anyone could identify them. Thanks in advance.

Hi welcome to the forum. I think the first is a young Pleurotus and the second a Hypholoma.
