Description:

21/09/2012 walking along tideline on Wales coastal path around Loughor estuary North Gower. Noticed feathers by their striking apperance. Longest one was approx 30cm (longest in picture 27cm). Found at least 20 so I should immagine not much hope left for bird.

Feathers

I agree that there are 3 different birds. The three Oystercatcher primaries, a long gull primary and then something more Curlew-like.
