Species with which Fox (Vulpes vulpes) interacts

Not sure -

Could be fox? They also eat berries when they can get them: although there is usually also fur and/or beetle carapaces in fox droppings.
The lack of white uric acid stains would seem to rule out any large bird.
Oh - and thanks for avoiding the very coy word "poo"!

There is not enough body to this dropping to be sure. There are no others around so unlikely to be badger, more likely fox. When fox feed on berries they sometimes pig out on them to the exclusion of all else so you can get fox droppings with berries and nothing else.
