This is a Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) primary wing feather, so it is indeed from a predatory bird. The orange hue suggests that this came from a juvenile and/or female individual. Featherbase provides a good reference here.

For future feather identification questions, you may wish to post them to the Found Feathers project on iNaturalist.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Biology.SE! This looks like a good answer, but you are more likely to get a positive response if you explain why your identification is correct. Specifically, please edit your answer to add discussion of key features that led you to this conclusion and supporting references or at least validated images. Without this your answer is indistinguishable from opinion. (Note that answers must stand on their own — i.e not require us to follow links.) ——— Please also take the tour and then consult the help pages for additional advice on How to Answer effectively on this site.
