Bracket ID please (was Turkey Tail ID)

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.

When these started to appear I thought they were Trametes versicolor ( you told me that ;) ) of which there a lot mostly on the tree stumps that I have dotted around the area. But now I not sure as these are mostly white. They smell mushroomy. As a bye the bye following our extremely wet weather of late I have never seen so many fungi here, quite a few not seen before.
