Feathers Point Clear, Essex, UK (1 Viewer)


Active member
Can anyone help ID these feathers? They were found yesterday on a bank near the estuary at Point Clear, Essex. Pretty sure they're not tufted duck, lapwing, moorhen, oystercatcher or any other black and white bird I can think of. Sorry I forgot to add something for scale. I would estimate the black and white feather in the first image to be about 5cm long. Thanks.
