Interesting! but don't know

Interesting! but don't know what you have! Maybe 2 different. White could be a slime mould but don't know which one.

The more I know the more I realise I don't know

I'm fascinated by this one

It doesn't appear to have the "antler" shape of the Coral fungi, so I will be very interested to know if anyone can put a name to it.
Did it have any odour?

have just managed to find out

have just managed to find out possible ID (other ISpot images and google search) - looks very like two stages of Stemonitis fusca.....

As an identification. Looks quite likely to me.
