Grooved bonnet, Whitton Avenue West

I am reasonably certain that this is Mycena polygramma, a grooved bonnet. This bioluminescent fungus is growing on a wooden gate post just off a road full of trees that are showing off their autumn colour. The weather was very mild today but that is likely to change over the next two days.
