Feather

It looks somewhere close to a largish raptor to me (Buzzard, say), but given the area it was found, I could not begin to attempt a species.

Feather

Alternatively, maybe an owl of some kind (and with the size of the feather, perhaps Eagle Owl?). It looks like a secondary and the very loose and fluffy-looking lower barbs look more owl-like than anything else to me, but pfff...!

Owl

Yes, I wondered that, too.
