Purple Jellydisc (Ascocoryne sarcoides)
I also decided to use this walk to start looking at and recording some of the lichen species found on the common.

C. floerkeana is a specialist of heath land and moorland and it's bright red tips are unmistakable. They always make remind me of Swan Vesta matches.
