Looks a bit like a field mushroom, however it was growing in a crevice between a wall and a pavement and it's too early I thought for field mushrooms have a look let me know what you think. I've still very new with mushrooms despite being pretty hot on foraging plants and fruits.

It is not too early for field mushrooms. Although they tend to ocurr later in the year, they occasionally appear earlier in the year. I found a large ring of field mushrooms three weeks ago.

The mushroom in your picture definately looks like an agaricus but I am not sure that this one is campestris (field mushroom). Agaricus can be very difficult to ID and the detail on your picture is not clear. It looks possibly like agaricus bitorquis. I can't make out from the picture, but does it have adouble ring on the stem? If so it will be bitorquis.
