Hi Jenny, will try and get some new ones, dropped my camera and broke battery housing, trying to take pics at moment with an elastic band wrapped around it.

Physcia species and Caloplaca

The grey lichen is definitely not Hypogymnia.

As far as can be told from the photograph it is either Physcia tenella or P. adscendens (more likely the latter?).

The yellow lichen is a crust, so not Xanthoria. Most likely young Caloplaca flavescens I think.
