Called Bamburgh Buzzard because I was walking towards the village and castle of Bamburgh when I spotted this fluffly little feather on the floor before me. I am pretty confident it is a buzzard feather, either from a young bird or the fluffy part of a mature bird. So light and fluffy this little feather never stays still in my studio.
