I didn't think C. macilenta had the 'golf tee' structures - could it be one of those such as coccifera or pleurota? There's also a problem with the map as the location appears to be in the sea between E.Anglia and Holland.

Cladonia lichen

Thanks for that - having looked at the British Lichen site and a few more of my photos of the same thing I now think its Cladonia coccifera.

Bit of a mess up on the conversion front from OS grid to Latitude and Longitude - I missed the "-" sign ! Hope it's now back on dry land. I'll have to correct a few others where I did the same thing.
