I noticed these pellets, which as can be seen from the photo are quite red and seem to contain some kind of hard bits (I suspect signal crayfish as a number of detached heads also found). Near the pellets were the remains of about 5 toads, consisting only of head and some entrails. These were all in close proximity and were on grass at the edge of a pool in a stream located next to woodland. I have included a photo next to my car keys to show size.
Later discovered from repeated trail cam footage that the spot was being visited by an otter. Even caught footage of it leaving droppings.
