I was cycling along when I saw these at the base of a tree. Seeing as they were so small they stood out a mile!
I jumped off my bike to have a better look, I thought they were fungi. There were 10 of them, the largest being about 5mm across, some were bright red but a couple were much paler almost pink, and were 6cm above the ground on the trunk of an oak tree.
I think they are more plant than fungal, I don't think slime mould either, but don't really know.
Do you think they could be new shoots or something?
What do you think?
