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.
