At first I thought I had found another Orange Birch Bolete, especially as the mushroom was right in among the trunk and major roots of our biggest Downy Birch tree. Then I noticed its cap was glossy and striate.

It is Orange Grisette (Amanita crocea)

Not a great photo as I jiggled the camera but it shows the large birch root underneath the mushroom and the tree trunk is a very few centimetres to the left.
