A months ago I found a area under a low pine tree where small pits have been dug and something had had diarrhoea into them. It was quite black and tarry. It didn't look like hawthorn fruit leather in the way the picture does. Would it be badger? Would they still use that area now?Well, it looks very similar to what Ratbag pointed out to me the other day: Badger poo! But badgers dig a latrine, a square hole to poo in, which hasn't happened here. It certainly looks a bit oily and I bet it was smelly. Probably one of the weasel family, but not badger which is part of the weasel family, believe it or not!
Let me get my poo book out and have a look! And no, not Winnie the Pooh!
