Natural History Quiz

When walking the dogs we came across the above lying on the grass. The grass is in a part time running stream from a bog full of reeds. It's on the edge of Llandegla Moors. It only appears in Winter. I think its a fungus of some sort. The example photographed is about 6 inches long. I haven't touched it but it looks jelly like, partially translucent.

Answer when I find it in comments.

That took some finding. Could be this.

postscript: It looks more like snow fungus.
Steve's photo gives better perspective. I didn't fancy getting hold of it until
I knew what it was.

Don't fancy the drink they make with it.......................

Comes in vitamin format

Finally decided its Star Jelly
