Hedgehog poo - please say yes!!!

Morning everyone.  I’m a little bit excited. We had several hedgehogs in our garden about 6-7 years ago but they disappeared and I haven’t seen one since.  I found this is my garden this morning. I’ve googled it and it looks identical to hedgehog poo. It’s about 35mm long. I would be so happy if you can confirm that’s what it is. I have so many bees, butterflies, frogs and garden birds and try to make my garden as wildlife friendly as possible ..... this would be the icing on the cake!  Apologies if you haven’t had your breakfast yet 😉🤞
Oh and I’ve never uploaded a photo before so hope it comes across ok. Thanks all!

    We find that ours prefer the Go Cat crunchy & tender chicken biscuits.   Much cheaper
    and all the experts say they’re just fine for them.

    We sit indoors on the sofa with the door to the terrace open and can hear them crunching over the sound of the telly  :D

    Don't forget the water as a "side dish" @ allyblueeyes ! It's great when they return, isn't it.  :)

    Oh yes!  A shallow dish of fresh water ... they guzzle lots of that every night.  :)

    Agree with Dove I use the soft dog biscuit not fish based for both Hedgehog and badgers also no milk for the hedgehog as they are generally lactose intolerant

    Is there a need to feed them? I would have thought there was plenty of pickings with slugs and snails etc

    Richard, their numbers are in such deep decline, we have to do all we can to help and encourage them. And new hoglets.
