Hi Sid, If I’m honest, I’m not convinced that it is a pellet. There appears to be evidence of fresh meat attached and that’s something I wouldn’t normally associate with a pellet. Having said that, I still don’t know what it is, but totally agree with Keith about how fresh it looks.
Here’s a picture of a ‘very fresh one’ taken about five years ago, just south of the mound.

You dont get much fresher than that Dougie, see what you mean about the fresh meat/pink part, a pellet is the waste or inedible part cant see a wild animal wasting part of its meal unless it was regurgitated premiturely, definately contains animal remains though, could it be a rabbits paw?
Theres far too much un-compact fur in these shots to point towards a BOP pellet. Keith looks to have the nod regards a chewed up Rabbits paw/leg. Found the remains of a Wood Pigeon on the Leas today, body intact but no head.. Then I was told of a Peregrine seen numerous times resting on the "Midden" across the Tyne, sort of fits in.
