Size matters

I only want to know roughly, to the nearest 10cm or so will do.

If it is a Badger sett, there

If it is a Badger sett, there are likely to be one 1 or 2 distinctive Badger hairs adhering to the top or sides of the burrow. If you can get close, a careful examination might reveal a giveaway black & white hair or 2. This is a very good way of identifying Badger setts!
