Cladonia ciliata

That explains a lot. I thought something wasn't quite right, and hesitated for a long time because the branches were 'combed' in one direction.

This has reminded me

I am about (I think) to do a Cladonia update on my website, and one thing I need to do is to add more photographs of C. ciliata. I keep forgetting that what is on the site is okay for the woodland form of it, but I have a lot more photographs of it now - both colour forms and also with apothecia. So page revision to come. Several other species to add.
