Found on a picnic bench in a garden surrounded by a tall wooden fence.
Any ideas?

Soak it in water and gently pull to pieces, if it's fur and bone then owl pellet, bones can be arranged on dark cardboard or paper and approx species of meal found from that.If not paper bag and bin. Don't forget to wash your hands afterwards. We used to do it at school as part of science project

It was in my daughter's garden and unfortunately she'd taken the hose pipe to it before sending me the pic.

Being curled up tends to be from the rear end, foxes are quite imaginative with where they leave a wee present.

What is the white bit in the middle?

That'd be bird urine.

For it to be fox poo think small dog poo but with a very distinct pointed end - most wild carnivores have pointed end or tailed poo.

More faecal than urine would sway me to a corvid, perhaps a raven or rook.
