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 recently spotted this rather nice looking fungi on a limestone grassland in Cambridgeshire and was wondering if anyone could help me with an ID?

Bolbitius titubans - Yellow Fieldcap

Welcome to UK Fungi!
(note that the word "fungi" is plural, so you can have "this fungus", "these fungi" or "this mushroom" - I would go for "this mushroom" as the fungus is the mycelium and all of its parts (of which a mushroom is just a fruiting body), and most of the fungus is underground.)
