I found this strange face-like fungus today at Sydlings Copse BBOWT nature reserve near Oxford.

I have no idea what it is. Perhaps a polypore?

I'm glad you all liked it. Still no idea what it is though. I think I'll try the local wildlife trust mycologist.

The helpful staff at BBOWT have identified this as Bay Polypore (Polyporus durus).
