A sweet weeping tree

This fungi does not solely grow on Oaks despite its name of Oak Bracket Fungi; although we saw it growing on Holm Oaks sometimes called Evergreen Oaks I have seen it on Birch and Alders. Easily distinguishable as the growth itself looks like a lump of solid honey oozing from the tree. The edge of the bracket exudes droplets of what looks like runny honey. I’m assured it doesn’t taste sweet. I didn’t try it!
