I don't think the main moss is Racomitrium. I'm not entirely sure what it actually is but something like Campylopus pyriformis is possible. The other species looks like a Hypnum sp. Perhaps H. cupressiforme.

Moss at the top looks like

Moss at the top looks like Hypnum jutlandicum. The lower moss could be Campylopus as dan suggests, or dicranella, but if i have judged the scale right i think it may be Diocranum scoparium.
