I will second that, Bolbitius vitellinus .  Although I wouldn't suggest eating fungi that grows on dung.  Having said that I believe the Panaeolus shinctrinus which is similar in shape, grows on dung, but is dark in colour, was a popular one in the 1960's before a Pink Floyd concert.

We have been feasting on the Agarcus campestris (field mushroom) 2 of which were 150g each, Calocybe gambosa (St Georges), Maramius oreades (fairy ring champs) and the odd Pleurotus eryngii (King trumpet/Oyster), Coprinus comatus (Shaggy ink cap) and Boletus pinophilus (only one but it weighed 400g). 

The Fairy rings have been the easiest to find, so we have been drying them So we have a good supply for summer.

Greetings All,
Just to avoid any misunderstandings have modified my original posting and added the words NOT EDIBLE.

Re. the Pink Floyd concerts, another one might possibly have been the similar-looking Psilocybe coprophila
