That's natural and how ostrich behaves, as it ages. As it is used it becomes smoother and darker, looks to me as though the ostrich was the same colour but the flap and body came from 2 separate skins that have taken the dye differently. The quill part is only some of the skin and on larger pieces they have to go with the eye and matching quill appearance rather than the same skin (ostrich can have a lot of waste).

BV can perhaps do something to make it look more uniform, but I would strongly advise you not to do anything to your bag yourself. Leather conditioner will actually usually make it darker.
