  1. Worth checking if it bruises or oozes. If it's the saffron milkcap the gills should bruise green and if cut the fungi should ooze an orangey sap. Lactarius deliciosus, Saffron Milkcap mushroom WWW.FIRST-NATURE.COM
  2. The first couple of pics could be some type of lactarius, possibly a saffron milkcap. I'm going on colouring as they don't look like great examples for an id but might give you somewhere to start. Mycorrhizal on pines if it is.
  3. I've been doing this on old rusty tools as well. Works well on old bits for a brace and bits, axe heads, hammer heads etc. Not sure how it will affect any special finishes and it does stain any wood black. Wilkos sell citric acid fairly cheaply. I can also vouch for the need for gloves if you have any cuts on your hands...
  4. £300k fine for the developer and £120k for the felling contractor. Tree priced at £66k. That works out at less than £4k per house... Developer and firm fined £300k for illegal felling WWW.BBC.CO.UK A 176-year-old giant redwood was cut down to make way for new homes, a court hears.
  5. To clarify this I would still try and use the Consumer Rights Act (it replaces sales of goods etc) as if I was a personal consumer. Just be aware that there are differences for businesses. https://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/regulation/consumer-rights-act

  7. Depends on your council, ours are very unhelpful. You do need to be careful with these laws as they don't give the same protections in business to business transactions. There is plenty of advice online from Which? and Citizens Advice if you're a personal customer.
  8. Plenty of various fungi about down here at the moment. I found (smelt) a good example of a stinkhorn today, dripping nicely from the trunk of an alder.
  9. It's not a positive id but I'd go with puffball, possibly flaky puffball, for the first and parasol for the 2nd.
  10. Is it not a young and/or poorly formed beefsteak fungi?
  11. I'm currently trying to sort a planer sled, using a small Bosch planer. It's not easy as there's no simple way of securing the planer and it will only plane a couple of mm depth. With a router you can simple bolt the base to something and the router bit can be adjusted down a few cms. I've currently removed the back base of the planer and mounted it on a piece of ply the same thickness as the base. It almost works but there's still too much movement for a seamless finish on a slab. A piece of aluminium as a sled would be better. If anyone wants to try a planer take a good look at the planer and see how you'll mount it and keep it fixed in place.
  12. Without knowing the full details of the case and T&Cs it's hard to see who's fault it is. Your contract is normally with the supplier, not the delivery company. No idea if this link helps and it may not necessarily apply to a business. If you nominated a safe place and it wasn't left in that safe place then you can argue it wasn't delivered. This may be obvious, but it's not be left somewhere else? I've known of cases where stuff has been left at the wrong address and even received parcels myself where the recipient hasn't bothered to collect. In hind site never get anything of value left without a signature. How to complain if your parcel was left somewhere or stolen WWW.WHICH.CO.UK This advice applies if your parcel hasn't turned up, were left somewhere outside your home and stolen, or left with a...
  13. A quick google comes up with the "LOCAL GOVERNMENT (MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS) ACT 1976" and this is taken from Dorset Council, https://moderngov.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/documents/s6023/TreePolicies.pdf
  14. Do they smell of aniseed at all? At first glance I would suggest horse mushrooms, Agaricus arvensis. As you say, I'm not saying they are edible but that's where I'd start. This might be useful to look and watch: https://www.wildfooduk.com/mushroom-guide/horse-mushroom/
