Fairy Rings

 Rings of Fungi often appear in the autumn and these are sometimes called fairy rings. They are the fruiting bodies of the fungus which lives underground feeding on decaying material.
We think this is the Trooping Funnel (Clitocybe geotropa) which commonly forms rings under beech trees but  are not confident enough in our identification to eat them!
