Not much scale in this

Not much scale in this picture, what size was that roughly? The best way to tell is probably from the scent. Badgers and foxes have their characteristic musty smell. Scout the area for latrines or general droppings. Straw like bedding and materials like that left out is also a big tell tail sign. There's quite a bit of leaf litter at the mouth of this entrance though, usually if it's inhabited the entrance is clear from usage.
