Unusual (to me) skull found in tree hollow in a mixed bird aviary, ID needed?

Hi, came across this (what I think may be a) skull in a hollow stump of a willow tree while checking for birds nests at work, at about 5ft up and half buried in soil. At first glance I thought it was some sort of amphibian because of the markings on it. Also in this hollow were a few smaller bones which looked like they could be ribs, very fine and thin compared to this one. Possible found cache of a rat or bird?

 

Be aware this is an african bird exibit featuring a few species of duck, pelicans, cranes, and storks, but was once just an open air pond so other wildlife could come and go freely.

 

Any ideas?
