Beech Marten Dropping
Dropping of Beech Marten Martes foina (aka Stone Marten). These droppings are often places in prominate places (on stones, walls, stumps, logs and, as in this photo, buildings) where other martens can easily see them. Note the reddish colour and seed content due to the animal feeding on a nearby cherry tree. Found at Hortobagy-halasto, Hungary, August 2009.
