An invader scaling castle walls?

Description:

'Coastal' is a bit misleading, as it was growing on Dunstanburgh Castle wall (high up). Not a brilliant photo as it was out of reach, but I think it's S inaequidens.

Brilliant - thanks.

Thanks - I've only seen it before in the BSBI field Id skills test a few weeks ago (when I did not get it right, as I couldn't find it in Rose - as it's not in there - and gave up in Stace when the first question was about whether it was woody at the base or not, and the samples didn't have bases). So I'm pretty pleased I noticed it in the wild.
