Description:

Yellow and grey foliose lichens present on the weathered bricks at the top of the wall. These two species frequently occur in the same conditions but one does not often dominate. Some of the foliose species are more creamy than the rest of the grey lichen and may be different.
There may be a little pf a crustose species on the side of the wall too.

Various things here, but ...

The resolution is not good enough to ID the grey species, but I see nothing that looks like Physcia tenella. Possibly Physcia caesia is present.
