Dryad's saddle, the Paddock, Smestow Valley LNR

Dryad’s saddle growing on a tree on the Smestow edge of the Paddock, Smestow Valley LNR. It’s a spring / summer fungus, but this and several smaller fruiting bodies growing on the same trunk had already been around long enough to be looking tired and elderly.
