(Map not working) Found 20th October 2019. In Barry, South Wales, U.K. In mixed woodland. Feather seems like a breast feather, around 2cms long. My first thought was blue tit, but they have yellow breast feathers. The tip was bright shimmery bluey-turquoise in the sun, and a less dazzling dull shade of turquoise in the shade. I've sprawled the Internet and the closest lookalike is a kingfisher feather, but I can't imagine there's kingfishers in a woods were there's no lake, stream, river or even large ponds, just ditches that fill up when it rains. There are rivers within 2miles of where we saw it, but that still seems unlikely. So I am at a loss. Happy for any suggestions. Thank you.
