Otter spraint pointed out on guided walk
No interactions present.
You can see the fish bones and scales. The only other animal it could have been is a mink and they usually have mammal and/or bird remains in their droppings as well.
Was it sitting on a small mound of lush grass? Otters often mark their territory with spraints, defecating in the same spot. This builds up into a small mound fertilised by the droppings.

yes it was on a mound of grass, we also had a guide with us who said it was a spraint and otters were common along this stretch of the river
