Orange Slime Mould

Probably Lycogala epidendrum, wolf's milk slime mould.  The orange fruiting bodies (aethalia, not sporangia) were up to a centimetre or so across.

It must be the season for this species: I came across it in three separate places during my walk, in each case it was growing on decaying wood.
