Lichen (Lecanora chlarotera)

A smooothish, grey background (the thallus) with reddish brown discs (the apothecia) growing on tree bark indicates that this is almost certainly Lecanora chlarotera.
This is a very common lichen across the country with the exception of the south east and the industrial midalnds as it is not able to tollerate polluted environments.
