Gruesome Garden Find

Whilst fastening the plants back up to the new fence in the front garden I came across this skeleton which i think may be the remains of a greenfinch.  It is tiny and very delicate and I have had an awful job getting a decent photograph of it.  I want to make some drawings but think I will need a magnifying glass to get the detail!  I did not find the rest of its body but perhaps when I find more dead bodies in the garden I should leave them to decompose.  Some of the shapes are so beautiful.

Wonder what a squirrel looks like as a skeleton?  Now there's a thought!  Think Mr Fox or Mrs Buzzard would be off with it before it became a bare skeleton.
