could be way off the mark with this but the op photos resemble Capnobotrys dingleyae (syn Hormiscium pinophylum/ Antennaria pinophyla )

 

which has been recorded on Yew before, and seems to occur more often in the north of the country from what i can make out,

 

From the couple of photos I've been able to find via Google, I think you've nailed it there.

Ahh, one needs to be so careful what one says on the Forum. I should have said 'commonest' on Yew. The stage of completeness of the database is not known but perhaps there are more records not yet added to it. Anyway, it is a useful indicator of some sort of the geographical spread. 32 is a good start. In that context, I withdraw 'common' and replace it with the wishy-washy 'not unheard of'.
