I agree, it does look like it. It might have come in with the log-roll edging. As Honey fungus needs dead wood as a 'home base', I would suggest removing all of the log roll and regularly digging that area over as this will break up the rhizomorphs and might stop it spreading. You should dig-out that dead privet and try and remove all of its roots. If you find any black 'bootlace' looking things in the soil while you are doing it, that would confirm Honey fungus.
