It could very well be, Tristan. To be honest I am not familiar with black knot fungi, I only know it from online photos and read that it affects Prunus trees. It's just that in photo 3 I believe I see slime trails, which makes me think it's a slime mold.

Maybe the same as this one. Was it extremely hard?

Could this be a knot fungus?

Great spotting, Tristan. I think it's a slime mold, perhaps Badhamia utricularis, but that's just a wild guess.
