badger droppings? why all the cereal in the droppings?
No interactions present.
From the shape I would agree badger. Even the cereal grain in the droppings are not unusual, badgers are walking dustbins and will eat anything that is easy pickings; plant, animal, living, dead, long dead....! Badgers can not digest celulose well, therefore, cereal would pass through the gut relatively untouched.
Was this found along a badger run? It is clearly not a boundary marker as it is not in a well used latrene (a shallow, bare depression in the ground). Badgers will defecate anywhere when away from the sett.

it was in a meadow, each year when i visit the meadow is flattened down in some areas which looks rather like badgers running around
They'll be flattening the crops to get at the heads, very tasty but as you can see not very nutritious as the seed passes straight through.
