What does your finger measure

across the nail, say? Size matters, when trying to identify an egg!

Across the nail,

not the thumb, 1.6cm. Thanks.

That would seem to put the egg -

into the range of about 40 x 30mm size. Possibly Pheasant? Or it might be waterfowl, such as a Mallard? I can't see any water bodies close to the location, so that might be less likely.

That seems reasonable

and I agree the location suggests Pheasant rather than water fowl.

Given your work on it, why not propose Pheasant as an ID?
