Xanthoria parietina lichen
this is very common, and just about everywhere you look now :) but it is a fascinating little thing and well deserving of a closer look :) Xanthoria parietina 1.jpg Xanthoria parietina 2.jpg

lots of what looks to be the same species found on some fallen ash tree branches,
so i'm guessing its Xanthoria parietina ?
and pic 2 shows a second species growing alongside it,
