    Looks like a hedgehog poo to me.  Not sure what he's been eating, but I'm pretty sure it's a hedgehog.

    That's not a hedgehog, unless it's inside out!!

    Hegdehogs are prickly.

    Looks like hedgehog poo to me too.

    Hoggie seems to have eaten something it can't digest so it's gone straight through!

    Hi satrdayboy 

    Do you have common ivy, in berry in your garden and do you have lots of blackbirds. 

    I have loads of these in my garden and for me they are the blackbirds eating the ivy berries and pooing wherever image 

    I can tell what they've taken a fancy to lately from the colour of their poo... 

    That's what I think they may be, just a thought image

    I've found poo like this in my garden. I do get hedgehogs and thought they may have been eating the berries from my winter box. I get blackbirds too but it looks too big to have come from a blackbird! No ivy berries in my garden but plenty across the road on the farm.

    It does look the shape & size of a hedgehog poop but the berries are the more concerning part - it would indicate to me a desperate hog with little food sources about. Would you consider making a feeding station for them? They'll reward you by eating the 'baddies' in your garden too!
