A probable Slime-mould on dead wood in the park today

I expect Simon or Jo will know more about these strange organisms than I do!

Thanks Simon. Yes very similar to the British Wildlife cover!

Sounds a very reasonable ID, Des. When I saw the first photo I thought maybe just snail/slug eggs. But the second photo shows clearly stalked structures looking like the sporocarp fruiting bodies of some slime-moulds. The photo of slime-moulds on the cover of the latest edition of British Wildlife magazine resembles these quite closely.
