Pretty sure it's on hazel -

Pretty sure it's on hazel - main trees around location. We don't have much beech here.
I've found H. fragiforme on variety of logs here including old firs. Earlier in year distinctive salmon-pink.

Also appears to be on surface of bark not erupting from below.

Many thanks all your help - I'm still learning about fungi after many years. "The more I know the more I realise I don't know"!
