The white looks like uric acid, which is how birds and reptiles excrete nitrogenous waste instead of as urine. This saves water (and weight - important for birds).
I agree, it does look like a bird dropping, possibly a goose?

Have you got pheasants around there? Not certain if a pheasant dropping should be thicker.
Yes, there are pheasants around Llanilar, although I've never seen them down by the river. Thanks for the info!
From the size and shape I would say definitely pheasant. Move it onto the bird forum and see whet you get there.
