This fungus appears to be growing off this small log, or the detritus immediately around it. Some of the dead leaves in the surround look to be from beech trees. I don't know if there's a real chance at a positive ID for species of fungus, but would appreciate some help if there is. Thanks!
Most clavarioid fungi are saprotrophic with a terrestrial habit, growing in woodland leaf litter or in mossy grassland. A few grow on wood or on decaying herbaceous stems and fallen leaves.
