This is in the Y of a branch and trunk on a 5 finger tree.
In the field I thought it was some sort of blue Lichen.
Now I'm not sure, it seems to have something to do with sap as well.
There was a patch on both sides of the Y.
The blue bit in pic 1 & 2 is 10mm long max.

This is an old but healthy Willow.
It looks as though some sort of Mould has got in grown and caused a large limb to split off.
The Mould has the texture and feel of vinyl paint, a triple coat.
It seemed to want to peel of when I tried, quite elastic again like vinyl paint.
