Collema tenax - found it difficult to work out this lichen. Very distinctivly dark and rubbery. Dark green with chestnut disc-centres.
Chiffchaff through the kitchen window. We get very few birds actually in our garden, so this bird has been nice to see in the last few days. Looking for insects on a Guernsey Fleabane it seems.

Just wondering if that's a different moss in your Collema tenax lichen photo to the Grimmia pulvinata above it? I've just managed to (finally) ID the latter as one of several on the local church wall in TQ6410 but the fruit capsules all seem to be green and drooping within the moss rather than tall and erect as per the moss in your lichen pic. Enjoying your photos by the way .... (p.s. just edited my original comment as my latin spelling's rubbish!)ReplyDelete
Hey Mike. I too am very much a novice with mosses, but the one in the pic you are talking about is probably Wall Screw Moss (Tortula muralis) which seems to be easily the most common moss-on-a-wall in these parts.ReplyDelete
