Can you get some close up pictures of the bracket upper and under surface plus measurements would help too.

Hi, thanks for coming back. I'll try and get some more photos over the weekend (if it stops raining!) and get back to you.

Hi Flaxton - having had another look at the tree, and now it is in leaf - you're spot on - it's a birch! Thanks for your help.

No need

There is no need to duplicate Flaxton's identification by adding it yourself all you have to do is click on Flaxton's identification,you would only add an identification if you had thought of it not someone else.
