some kind of moss or fungus?

staffs, United Kingdom Gb

I get alot of gold finches in my garden and they feed on sunflower seeds which are hung from a robinia frisia. Directly underneath, on the ground there is wire wool type hair growing , it forms a mat and if I dig it out the stench is awful. Have you got any idea? Many thanks, Bewildered.



Sounds horrible! Can you post a photo of it? I hope that someone will be able to help you.
