I discovered evidence in my garden this morning of a very welcome little visitor emerging from hibernation. This is hedgehog poo!
You might not get to see these nocturnal animals, and they are actually getting quite rare apparently, so I was really glad to find the droppings. They are about 6-8 cms long, and sausage shaped. If you do find some in your garden you might like to help your hedgehog through the lean period for food by leaving out a little cat food. Apparently they enjoy it mixed with porridge oats and hopefully that might dicourage the neighbourhood cats from cashing in!
