Hi, I just noticed these white shoots on my lawn today. Never seen them before & wondered if you can advise please? When you touch them, they pull away easily. We are in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, Many thanks, Pauline Thomson

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through.I cannot make an ID.

It could be Monotropa uniflora, or the Ghost Pipe plant, from your description. This is quite the interesting, parasitic plant.
