Yes Keith, but still looking to get a decent close-up of a mating pair of migrant hawkers - the ones I see are always on the wrong side of a ditch!

Hi Rob,

I can't be sure but no, i wouldn't have said so. Penny buns are usually distinctively chunky and robust mushrooms and the cap would be more chocolate-brown. The cap colour fits for Boletus luridus. Hard to be more helpful without further pics of the stem and underside and other useful hints like dimensions, nearby tree species and any colour changes upon cutting - sorry!

Judging by the thin (compared to many Boletus), erect and scaly stem, i'd say those are Leccinum.

But on the subject of Tortoises, i see that despite personal and species extinction, "Lonesome George" continues to get press coverage:
