Hello everyone, I would appreciate it if someone could identify the fungi growing out of the bark at the base of a rather grand, old and beautiful Chestnut tree that grows in my garden. Its sprung up rapidly over the last couple of days. I know nothing about fungus (other than the fact that various different varieties grow in different places around my garden each autumn), but I know that honey fungus is not good news. Is this honey fungus?
Pics below of the fungus, one I think is a little blurry but hopefully you can id from these (if the pics work, having lots of trouble today).
Thanks in advance
Fingers crossed these work and you're not looking at a little blue box with a question mark in it!
