I found this feather in a field of long grass next to a reservoir in the east midlands. In the reservoir I saw over 10 great crested grebe, flocks of Canadian and grey lag geese, 3 herons, and a buzzard overhead. Does anyone know which bird it came from?

Alan is spot on, it's from a male Pheasant . Have a look here.
