This is growing on my mum's lawn, some kind of fungal/lichen thing?
Any ideas please knowledge bank?

    Could be snow mould, a fungus.
    Was there any shrub/trees previously growing there but cut down/died?

    NB I chose that link because it’s a good photo. I know nothing about the company.

    Thank you! Definitely Dog Lichen.
    It makes sense as there are lots of old mines under the gardens, so odd things do appear. 👍
