I'm sure this could only be a peacock, large orange primary wing feather.
I Googled peacocks in Castlemorton and discovered there is a peacock breader in the village.

Hi Graham, I'm sure you didn't mean the Peacock Butterfly. I think it's under Indian Peafowl or something like that.
I thought the scientific name looked familiar!
I have learnt something I had not realised before, there are two species of peacock or peafowl - actually there are three but the African one looks very drab in comparison.
The Indian or blue peafowl is the more usual one in captivity and has a blue head and neck. The green peafowl has a, urm, green head and neck and comes from south-east Asia. It is the Indian blue peafowl that has the striking sexual dimorphism; in the green peafowl both sexes look very similar.
Anyway, back to the feather; it is impossible to say which species so I've put 'likely to be' and given the scientific name for the Indian blue because it is the more likely to be in captivity outside of a zoo.
