Unidentified attachments on tree

Observation - Unidentified attachments on tree - UK and Ireland. Description: Approximately three feet off the ground, these growths were on an old tree stump in ancient and ornamental woodland in the New Forest. I'm not sure of the type of tree, but there was a similar growth on a holly tree nearby.
