A gall on a willow, but I cannot identify it in Redfern & Shirley.

The 3rd picture is of a similar gall at the top of a tree, taken with a telephoto in the evening, so quality poor, but the gall was as large as a couple of fists.This is the one I saw first, and I then hunted for a gall lower down that I could photo close up (as shown).
