What a wonderful spotting, Brian38! I'm just going to make a wild guess, but perhaps these fungi are Psathyrella species. Just going by their appearance they seem to look a lot like Psathyrella pennata. Here is a link with some photo's of mushrooms that look similar to yours. http://ukrbin.com/show_image.php?imageid...

I have been searching for a match for you.....but, I am failing!
Cannot find one single mushroom that even looks close...
I hope somebody can ID it.
