Jun 25th by Ian under Bird Watching

spotted this unusual feather in a field next to the estuary, there was 3 or 4, not enough for a death on the ground, struck in the air and escaped? I think it's from a water bird, so it would not be roosting in a field of cows. Possible feather from the breast or flank. But from what?

    yeh, but they are wayward in winter, also this feather is black and white, think you’ll find a bittern is brown and white. Could be from a chicken and the feathers came off the farmer’s pickup? He drives around the field to check on his herd, usually they are surrounding me !!
