Bracket fungus on a Silver Birch.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
The under side looked a bit less flat than the ones i have found.
It is worth zooming it up!
The year rings looked a bit weak.
There are two areas of Birch i can get to. One is just being taken over by Sweet Chestnut and Sycamore. The other is a little less mature with very large Fly Agaric.
I would have agreed with Refugee until I saw Brian's comment about growth rings. Very interesting! There is a discussion from 3 years ago about Fomes growing in birch here: http://www.wildaboutbritain.co.uk/forums/fungi-forums/66776-fomes-foment...
