Lichen Hunt

I have very few trees by me, but I do live close to some of Britains best chalk cliffs, these pictures were taken at Newgate Gap and Walpole Bay in Thanet, Margate, Kent. I am not sure which varieties these are and am too uncertain to make a guess. Any help would be appreciated. There are traces of Algea and, I suspect salt deposits, alongside some of the lichen.

You need closer more detailed photograph's and to put them on as separate observations to have a chance of getting them identified.

Good Luck
