I’ve read all your posts and think it’s an absolute disgrace that people mark hedgehogs at all!
I have Hetty and Big Bruiser regularly feeding in my garden and initially it was difficult to tell them apart. But to be honest, I was so delighted to see them it didn’t matter if they had been before, I just felt blessed to see them.
However, having studied the cam footage for hours and stood quietly watching them, I have learnt to distinguish between them, even in poor light.
Of course I have been able to see that big bruiser is much bigger than Hetty but this is only obvious when they are in the garden together.
From studying the cam footage, I have been able to see that Hetty has longer legs and walks very differently to Big Bruiser and Big Bruiser has more spikes, almost like a spiky skirt that makes him look like he’s floating instead of walking.
Surely if these people were that committed to hedgehogs they would find better kinder ways to identity them!
I was surprised to read in one of the recent posts, that some hedgehog street subscribers agree with this painting /marking lark 😡 I agree with Annker’s solution !
Someone should paint these people in bright colours and parade them around !
