Coral Spot

Thank you for the input. The photo isn't very good but have looked at Coral Spot and the oragnism on the twig I have uploaded aren't as rounded and circular or raised as the Coral Spot? Don't know if this is to do with its life cycle?

As is often the case, both stages of Coral Ppot are here.

Most usually seen are the tiny pink or pink-orange cushions of the asexual stage, but most of the spots in your photographs are the much darker pink clusters of perithecia of the sexual stage.
