You could well be right common tree frog introduced in to this country 30-40 + years ago, BUT their are many thing that predat on frogs, from Heron - Fox If frog already dead Carrion crow etc.

Frogs in trees -

Especially dead ones, are probably a heron/fox/crow kill. At this time of year adults may not be aquatic, may be hunting in grass. Either a crow killed it, or found the corpse and carried it aloft for a little privacy.

Either that, or the grey squirrels have upped their game!

Bones in squirrels dreys

Well I did hear a story at a wild life meeting some weeks ago, that bones have been found in squirrels dreys. But was it the squirrels that put them their?

Squirrels eating frogs?

Well, they are very resourceful and bold, I wouldn't put it past the little beggars.

squirrels eat animals

A friend has witnessed a squirrel meeting one of her pet turtle and thought it was lovely until the squirrel decided to bite the turtles head off at once!

I'm not sure about squirrels :/

This could not be a tree frog as they are less than 5cm in length. How it got there, I agree it was probably a corvid prey that was left for some reason.
