Hi Martin,

Like Nic says, it does seem unlikely, but then again, nothing surprises me with them anymore! I thought that we had a couple of hoglets, but it turns out that they are last year’s juveniles. They looked very small on camera compared to the much larger adult males and I suspect that because of the long harsh winter they had lost a lot of weight. I find that the best way to tell is with one of those square green hedgehog feeding dishes, if they will fit inside one of those then it’s a hoglet.
