I found this beautiful feather in my little courtyard garden directly under a fat ball feeder I have attached to the wall. Feather is only 2.5 inches long. Couldn't match it to any of my usual garden visitors, and I'm a bit stumped...any ideas please? Thank you in advance!
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
