Unidentified forest plant

Observation - Unidentified forest plant - UK and Ireland. Description: Spotted these strange looking plants growing in a clump just on the pine forest margin about 20 feet off a forest track. On the rest of my 5 mile walk in the forest I saw nothing else like them anywhere. I have no idea what they are.
