Have just found a dead blackbird, half buried in a large (about 18" diameter)plant container full of soil (was last used for runner beans), what animal would do this? Fox perhaps? Any ideas?

Thanks for your thoughts! Amid lunch discussions, the bird got caught in the storm and nose dived into the pot apparently!!
A Mourning Dove?
possibly a burying beetle
Probably a fox.

Got a frequent urban fox in my garden. One year he buried a perfect roast leg of lamb, then removed it about 2 days later.
Came home from work one evening to find a big chicken buried in a patio planter underneath a miniature rose bush! Strange or what?
Things my dog has buried in disused plant pots include a Pedrigree Dentistix, a sponge cake that didn't come out quite right and half a stale loaf that I put out for the birds.
