Hello all, I came across this dropping on a local wildlife reserve and wondered if anyone out there would be able to identify it please. Dropping.jpg

Great pic. Location and size may help ?
It was taken a few years ago now and hard to remember size, but approximately the size and length of an average mans little finger. It was on a nature reserve near Tewkesbury Glos with ditches and flood meadows not too far from the river Severn.

Pretty sure it’s a mustelid - and I think this unusual twisting is typical of stoat or weasel but don’t know how to tell them apart (other than size).
Great picture by the way (y)

Hello Thank you for your input. My first thoughts were a mustelid too.. I have seen Stoat and Weasel droppings before, but none like this. They have been a little twisted and pointy at the ends, but this one looks more like a necklace to me!
Thanks re: the photo
