    2 looks like Russula
    3 look like Puffballs
    For more reliable identification of No. 2 a picture of a whole mushroom could be helpful, and a spore print.

    Thank you for posting Plantlife,

    I agree with Sundrop.
    Add that the mushrooms on the left of 3 look like Inocybes, but also that more info is needed to ID.
    For many mushrooms, a shot of the underside of the cap is useful.

    cheers,

    #1 looks like a hypholoma to me, but i'd need to see the gills and take a spore print for this one!

    I have collected number 2 and have it in a plastic bag, i didnt know if it was safe to handle.

    What i can do is take another shot of it from its underneath at higher resolution.

    Ive also got one more mushroom which looks just like ; Inocybe rimosa, thats just going by its appearance with my eye. I dont want to get to close to the things as i wouldnt want to inhale any spores, or consume poisonous toxins through my skin.

    I shall update the pictures tomorrow.

    1. mushrooms need paper bags, they suffocate and decompose in plastic.

    2. even if they were toxic, handling them should be safe.
