Animal hole

Hi, when next you walk along the river path heading towards the Pump House, when you get to the 2 huge stands of , hopefully dead,  Japanese knotweed, drop down on to the ‘beach’ and carry on walking. Not too far along you’ll come across a large animal hole in the bank. Above it, running along side the path, is an animal track. When the river was in flood the poor animal that lives there must have got a bit ‘wet’. What sort of animal do you think?
Badger? fox? are you any good on identifying poos? too large for an otter, I think, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if it was!

Any Suggestions?

Straw Bale in Dolfor Brook

Whilst out this morning, I spotted this (bound) bale of straw in the Dolfor Brook, by the Scout Hut.
Is it something to do with the Environment Agency attempting to catch some form of pollution, or just an act of weird vandalism? The brook is too low at the moment for it to have been washed down.
