Interesting. I have seen

Interesting. I have seen similar deposits around the Inverness area and had no idea what they were.

Droppings

I would say these are far too small to be fox. Other animals will feed on insects at the right time of the year including hedgehogs, stoats and weasels.

However, I am not seeing anything which could rule out a bird pellet such as little owl which specialise in eating invertebrates.

The trouble is the droppings are too old and broken up to confidently identify, sorry.

Bird

Hi Graham,

I ruled out bird as the deposit was on the lower rung of style and as such would be an unusual perch.....
