Brackets in deciduous woodland

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.

Three brackets attached. ID please. The tool is 12cms in length. Is #2 a form of red-belted bracket? Its size is 6cms from side to side. All photos in deciduous woodland in Warwickshire. Just starting out so finding ID v difficult at this early stage. Many thanks.
