Description:

Small/medium tree seen between towpath and River Thames in scrubby riverside woodland. Fruits may be last year's but look deformed and I can't work out what they are. It's probably a Prunus but I'd like to know what species.

Gall

Sloes go like this under the influence of Taphrina pruni, a fungal infection.
