Hi Deeb74

Not sure you can always tell – all those spines! But if it is a small one, it is just possible that it is practicing nest building. I had a hoglet here last autumn who started building a nest in the feed box. It was very elaborate and took a lot of hard work to build. In the end he didn’t hibernate in there (didn’t hibernate at all) but used it for short stays. It might be a case of wait and see.
