Not sure

Sorry, I really can't tell what this might be. Can you say something about the habitats it was near and any indication of scale of prints.

Great word Spoor - I've not come across that before!

The droppings (spore) are most likely those of a a bird - note the large white portion.

I'm afraid, as Debbie says, the prints are not clear enough to identify. There are claw marks so we can rule out cats; the prints appear to be rounded so unlikely to be a canid and are probably a small mustelid - stoat, weasel, mink, polecat. However, this is purely an educated guess.
