Suggests a bird to me, but I could be completely wrong.
If you re-classify this observation as a bird, the ornithologists will be more likely see it and soon put me right if necessary!
Thanks, I'll do that. It is more than likely it's a bird.
Yes, it might be a bird.
Have some fun here http://www.skullsite.com/skeletons/index.htm
With bones of that weight, it would never get of the the ground, this is not a bird skeleton!
in which case I am puzzled by that long one.
You have not mentioned size.
It could, of course, be an exotic frog.
Quite a lot of 'bits' missing I suspect.

Thanks everyone. Yes, I never even thought it could be a frog. There is a couple of ravens living up there. This could explain missing parts.
So as you have accepted it (I'm certain it is) then reclassify as an Amphibian - that way you might get some more interest. No agreements yet!
Good wishes then
It certainly looks froggy Derek.
Yes, I suspect it is a frog that died in difficulty.. Note the fused vertebrae and the long odd shaped urostyle.
There's some good anatomy here http://www.infovisual.info/02/028_en.html.
As always, hard to get agreements or confirmation.
Though you may have agreed and withdrawn it - yes?
I did Derek because I cant say it isnt a toad skeleton?
