Description:

This was growing on a wooden fence. There was a single Cladonia specimen growing about 15cm above this group which may or may not be the same species so I am making a separate observation for that one to be on the safe side. Here it is http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/306016?nav=latest_observations . There was another lone one growing about 10cm above that which I am more sure was the same as this but I am not posting any photos.

I wish I knew which one!

I wish I knew which one! They seem to be popping up all over the place at the moment. I have a number of them to be identified too, but trying to see and remember the differences is at present defeating me. :(

Maybe ...

This might well be C. humilis, but it's young and it's wet. Best named just to genus I think.
