    Any ideas guys? Very large and mature English oak with a bracket style fungus ‘within/flush with’ the bark and not mounted like a normal bracket...I’m struggling to ID it

    Weird. Looks almost like a little burl to me.

    If that is a fork above the swelling if may be callus/woundwood from the inclusion.
