Found these feathers in a pile just over the garden fence in a neighbouring field. There were no large feathers - they were all small like the ones illustrated.

There seems to be a good match on the carousel as well. The 3 tone brown and white ones seem to be the tail feathers.

The ruler helped as I knew I was looking for a smallish bird and luckily the tail feathers are quite distinctive.
