I was blessed with several hedgehogs for the first time in my garden last year.
Nothing hibernated in the hedgehog house over winter and have had no sightings this year (sadly can’t afford ‘hedge cam’)
However, something is eating the special hedgehog pellets I put out each evening. Have seen droppings by the birds water plate and round the garden but they don’t look like usual hedgehog droppings. Slightly bigger and thicker.
Live on edge of small market town near fields but don’t believe its a fox. Any ideas please? Would love to think the little snuffly, prickly beasties had come back 🙂
SORRY! Couldn’t find a way to attach photo so have added to gallery as ‘Hedgehog and Poo’ with pic from last year and the poo in question
Found this re. identifying wild animal poos. https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/wildlife/how-identify/identify-poo There are other sites as well if you can’t identify it from that one.
Fingers crossed it’s hogs!
Thank you for the link! Having studied the pictures (what fun we do have!) I believe it could indeed be hedgehog 🙂
Was semi-shielding last year, sitting out quietly in the dusk of the garden and watching the hedgehogs brought endless pleasure.
Thank you for your help
Yes, I know hog poo does seem to feature quite a lot on the Forum!! But really pleased to hear that it was a hedgehog’s. Hopefully you will see the actual hog soon! Good luck.
