Identify animal droppings


Can anyone identity these droppings. They are all on top of the same low growing plant?

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
  • Thanks! We've never seen a fox around here so didn't even consider that!

    Bird Poo.

    I would say more likely goose or some such. My fox poo is nothing like that.

    I concur.  Definitely not a mammal poo.

  • We have an annoying fox in our garden who regularly pee’s in the cat bowel and poo’s every where he can! Fox poo is more like small turds and not runny, unless it’s suffering from diarrhoea. Sorry for the language! image

    He pee’d on my washing in the summer that I’d left out in a basket and no matter how many times I washed it I couldn’t get the smell out so I had to throw it away image

    It depends on the time of year and the diet - late summer/autumn will be much more runny in relation to all the berries, it's the majority of their diet at that time of year. Not to be crude but a fox in London won't have the same consistency stools as one in suburbia.
