Not sure about these fungi. Could be Hygrocybe as they (I think) have colour variation. They are very small as indicated. The area is strewn with felled trees and mainly covered with moss. They seem to appear at the same time every year in the same spot.

I would, yes this looks like Galerina hypnorum, but that doesn’t matter much. You need microscopic shots of the spores and cystidia before you can say more, you should just go with Galerina for now.
