Hi Chris, I have very limited knowledge of fungi, but I do know this one (at least I think I do!). Google 'Chicken of the Woods' Laetiporus sulphureus and see what you think. I'm sure Charles can give a more expert opinion.
Thanks Barry. I knew you'd know. That certainly looks like the one, and edible too, but I will leave it where it is (unless you know of any moth larvae that might inhabit it)and not cook it.
Correct! Usually grows on Oak, but will grow on other deciduous trees.
Chris....also see the Carmarthenshire Fungi blog...I found on that moribund oak at that layby where we met for mothing at the Rhandirmwyn leadmines recently.
