I wondered if it might be a member of the Aspicilia cinerea agg. but the chemistry is wrong and being a muggins I didn't collect a specimen to see what the spores were like.

Sometimes if I want to keep track of an observation I add it to my 'Favourites' (but usually forget until its too late and I can't ever find it again!)
