    Inform the police. Don't move it yourself. It looks like a solid shot shell BUT over the years rust tends to leech over the entire object. If this is the case, the rust could be covering a brass fuse which means it could well be high explosive.

    Don't touch it, kick it, prod it or poke it. Mark the spot (or take a Tom Tom with you and mark the exact global position) and provide the Police with as much information about it's location as possible.
