Bracket Fungus

Also at Dromore Nature Reserve today were a selection of Bracket Fungi. Some were past their sell by date but others were just emerging.   They are extremely common and grow on dead wood and fallen branches of deciduous trees. It is common in woodlands all year round. This mushroom is called a Many-zoned polypore Coriolus versicolour, though I prefer its more common name of 'Turkey Fan Tail' or 'Turkeytail'. Sadly this mushroom is inedible.
