May be a type of slug, turning dark as it withers and dies. Do you see it move at all? How big is it?

well it does not seem alive as it does not move if i poke it about. it looks like seaweed to start with! there are various sizes some are quite small about as big as a 50p and some quite large say as big as a fiver.

Yes I am in the UK, east of england close to cambridge, and essex border, quite bizzare stuff I am quite determined now to find out what it is , so will keep on investigations.
