I've seen a couple of droppings on the lawn over the last week that I assumed might be cat, or maybe fox, but I've come to the conclusion that it's almost definitely hedgehog. They're very dark, sticky and show evidence of bits of beetle. Though according to my research you'd expect worms, fruit and seeds to be a major constituent too – which could well be the case here.

We have seen a hedgehog snuffling around the borders so it seems like a reasonable leap of logic. Cats don't tend to go on open grass, much preferring the freshly dug earth of the vegetable patch. There's not much for the urban fox in our back garden, and I'd expect bigger doings from such an animal anyway. I wonder if you can toilet train a hedgehog…
