Not sure

That is quite a lot of poo for a hedgehog. The one in my garden does much smaller ones than that.

Droppings

This faeces is a difficult one, the animal has been eating berries and this makes the droppings very loose and they tend to loose their tell-tale shape.

At 4cm across it fits well within the range for hedgehog faeces, especially as it is loose. If you look carefully you can see they are roughly cylindrical again suggesting hedgehog.
