Jelly Ear,

Sometimes they will grow on other trees, I have an enormous group growing on sycamore at the top of the garden :)

The colour and texture does not seen right to me but I could be totally wrong it may be best if a photo can be taken of it at a more mature stage.

Give it a week or two and it will have grown enough to tell, if you are passing in a week DebbieA and you have your camera with you, please could you do us the honour :)

Think I would favour Jelly

Think I would favour Jelly ear too but only slightly. If at all possible more pictures later would help.
