Hello fossil friends!

I live in Somerset and found this, would you identify as birds foot?

How old do you think it might be it?

So fascinates me, thanks super much for any insights 😃🕵️‍♂️🥰🙏🏼 Click image for larger version - Name: 4AED6F81-95A3-4249-96AB-4840B31FC892.jpeg, Views: 41, Size: 326.04 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 1F111B20-74CA-4E55-A7E6-C3D09540B1A8.jpeg, Views: 40, Size: 349.42 KB Click image for larger version - Name: C4D3C576-1D42-47E0-8481-59479AE2CB4D.jpeg, Views: 36, Size: 334.53 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 1CB86486-E385-40A5-95E2-0D95BF00F5AD.jpeg, Views: 36, Size: 431.34 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 92B3B731-1A97-496E-9A6D-538262D2B019.jpeg, Views: 36, Size: 429.40 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 6454F3AD-E556-47A5-AC44-EC96D51EFE6E.jpeg, Views: 37, Size: 378.65 KB

Hi Matthew,
I sincerely doubt that it's a bird's foot, although it really looks like one.
I would go for trace fossils, e.g. Chondrites or similar:

Hi and welcome to the forum. Given the lack of information - a scale, find location, type of find site etc. - it is impossible to give you more information, but I agree with Estwing, it does look like a Chondrite (Ichno (trace) fossil, burrows of a marine invertebrate).
