Feathers - part 2

I've collected the following feathers, but I'm not sure of the birds that they belonged to. Can anyone help? I've given sizes and where they were found.

Update 2 Sept: These have all been identified now and rather pleased with the first one!

Long-Eared Owl, secondary - 16cm / 6.5"
Found in Ochil Hills

Male Pheasant - 18cm / 7"
Found in Ochil Hills

Curlew, secondaries - 13cm / 5" 
Found along shore at Tayport, Fife

Redshank, tail feather - 7.5cm / 3"
