In my experience, hedghog poo not being present isn’t a reliable sign. I find the hogs here sometimes poo in the feed boxes and other times don’t. It might have been only one of the hoglets who did the poos in the feeding bucket. I also think if a rat is going to turn up, it/they won’t necessarily wait until the hedgehogs hibernate, as I am finding at the moment! It’s a bit of an occupational hazard with feeding hogs at this time of year. The one who visited here recently didn’t go into the boxes, but only ate the food outside, but didn’t finish all the food, so hopefully you would get some idea. Not easy to tell without a camera, really.
