Bleeding

I have added two photos. It bleeds red from cuts, very similar to the drops it is oozing anyway. At one edge it was almost making a bracket, so I turned that over and photographed the underside - which would be the top surface of an actual bracket. I don;t think it looks like S. hirsutum.

I am not sure that shows any

I am not sure that shows any reddening but as it seems to be bleeding and is on oak Stereum gausapatum is the best candidate.
