Fungi I.D please

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.

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

As it is producing coloured liquid droplets, it could be one of the Inonotus species.

Knowing what species of tree it is growing from could narrow things down, as might a phot showing it front-on & from the underneath.
It is very difficult to ID any fungi from a single top shot.

Regards,
Mike.
