Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hello, and welcome to UK Fungi.

This is Piptoporus betulinus - or, as it is now known - Fomitopsis betulina.
Common name Birch Polypore. (You can see from the photo that it is growing on a fallen Birch Trunk).

Regards,
Mike.
Common sense is not so common.
