I came across the remains of a bird on a recent walk near Balcombe, W. Sussex. I wonder if anyone can identify it for me?

sorry but with just a few feathers and bones its very difficult to say anything definitive in terms of identification.

Based on the feathers and the size I'd guess it could be a bittern, but that might be a long shat as they're fairly rare.
