Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Your lichen is one of the Peltigera species (Dog Lichens).

Unfortunately, I can't be more specific than that. - There are numerous Peltigera species, and I don't know enough about them. :oops:

Perhaps someone else might be able to be more specific.

Regards,
Mike.

Hi Mike

Thank you for at least a start, there is no shortage of some other Peltigera species in the area but this is the first year I have seen anything like this one.

Best regards,

Nick
