Found this in the heather today. Any ideas of what it is. Only the part of ot was left. I thought that it could be a toad/frog or maybe an Adder.

My money would be on a Common Frog, plenty of pointers, huge eye sockets, clearly visible Squamosal process (bit under the eye socket), the long Coccyx poking out behind the ribs, visible fused joint in the Frontoparietal . A Common Toad would have relatively smaller eye socket and shorter Coccyx. So if you can rule out Green frogs in the area, I would say for sure Common Frog. You really need Chris GO though, he is the expert on frog bones!
