What animal are these bones from?



I was wondering if anybody knew what animal/animals these bones are from? I found them in my garden, which is very close to a canal. The bones were from two overgrown planters left from previous owners.


I have previously found a rat skull, but unfortunately that got broken. But I believe that the largest bone is far too big for a rat.


I do have more photos if this helps.


Many thanks,

    Looking at photo ending 552;-


    at the far right is an avian Humerus, probably from a young bird possibly a heron

    Ulna of a bird, species unknown

    Metartarsus of a bird (foot bone), species unknown, species unknown

    Metatarsus of a bird

    Femur of a mammal, correct size for a brown rat.
