Fungi on Beech
Fungi on a felled Beech in The Knoll, Hayes, on 24 December 2012.
This piece of a Beech tree has been growing fungi for a few years. There's nothing individually spectacular here, but it does look quite colourful. I think these fungi are Stereum hirsutum (Hairy Curtain Crust) - that's the orange one - and Trametes versicolor (Turkeytail).
It's interesting that they seem to have colonised the wood in wedges, rather than in rings from the outside in.
