Description:

Mammal deposits on the gravel drive; we are surrounded by woodland and farmland. I would love to know what animal made these deposits. Obvious options are red squirrel and hedgehog, but plenty of other wildlife lives here too. Whatever it is, it likes cherries!(342 and 343 may be different from 346?)

Probably Hedgehog; 343 in

Probably Hedgehog; 343 in particular looks likely.

Droppings

Can you give some idea of size please? When an animal eats fruit it leads to sloppy droppings like these.
