I took these pics in the corner of 1 of the fields at my stable yard. There are 3 large holes which appear to lead deep underground and in close proximity are several deep gouges/shallow holes filled with excrement. It's definitely not fox or rabbit; I know what their stool looks like. The only candidate I can think of is badgers. Can anyone confirm please?This is 1 of the holes leading underground. I put my foot there for size comparison - I'm a British size 8 (9-91/2 American.This is 1 of the gouges with excrement. There are several of these in close proximity to what I assume are the entrance holes.
We do have a fox but I've never heard of foxes gouging a hole in the ground to have a dump in. And comparing Hadrian's poo photo with mine, I'd say they're pretty similar.That hole is a good 15 inches across and there are others of similar size although there is 1 that is only about 10-12 inches across.The holes I photographed are on 1 side of a raised boundary between fields. I didn't notice any discarded nest material; but there is a barbed wire fence running along the top & I don't have access to the neighbouring field so I don't know if there are more holes the other side with nesting material outside.
