Granddaughter Megan found part of a Wood Pigeon's egg and the feather shown in the photo whilst walking near a wood on the outskirts of Cambridge in early April. We would be interested to know which species the feather belongs to.
David, I have checked this with our bird specialist who feels that this is a feather of a juvenile pheasant. He adds that pheasants have several moults before they achieve their final, adult plumage.
Has to be said that feather foraying and identification is a great granddad/granddaughter activity.
