Feather identification

Hi everyone. Just been out for walk on Sussex farmland and my son found this feather. Any ideas what bird it came from please? Thanks in advance. Karen 

  • I am wondering if it comes from a pheasant;     if you look at this link and scroll down to the right hand photo and zoom in there is a similar pattern of feather, 3rd row down.   I am not an expert so I would wait for other opinions.

    Thanks Hazel - it might be from a male. Will see if anyone else gets back!
