The decorative bird droppings on the surface of this decorated stone.


The OS map says that this is a decorated stone, a petroglyph.
We were so lucky to find the landowner who was leaving his home and he granted us the permission to visit the stone in the field, in a point that is 20 metres higher than the entrance at the cattle gate. We walked southwest (220°) for about 100 metres.
The surface of the stone has 12 deep cupmarks on the edges, and apart from that the other decorations were the droppings of birds all over the stone, which has a diameter of about 2.50 metres along the southeast-northwest (160°-340°) axis, with a raise of its profile to the south.
