Alans thank you for your

Alans thank you for your help, it was a branch from a tree and the lichen on the tree was not low enough for me to take a photo, but I do think it was likely to be a recently fallen branch as we have had strong winds/rain over night. The Lichen seemed to be growing in a leaf like pattern and was not flat.
