The poisonous Sulphur Tuft fungi often sprout out of old tree stumps or fallen branches in February.  They help to break down the dead wood by feeding on the remaining nutrients.

You can easily recognise this fungi by the sulphur yellow coloured cap which gets more orange towards the centre.  The stems are yellow too, as are the gills, although you might notice a purple tinge to the gills which is produced by the purple coloured spores.
