Took these shot's today while walking across lea's,Is It a pellet from a Shortie... (hope your not eating anything) When's best time to look for Shortie's..



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.

Cheers,
Dougie.

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?

You could be onto something there Keith with rabbits paw - looks like a couple of nails in there and the 'meat' could be where its been severed..

Could it be the regurgitated parts that a dog or fox couldn't digest especially claws/nails?

Sids pellet-

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.
