He does look well fed all right, Trev, and a delightful shot of him you've captured.

Nice one Trev.
It seems to be a common problem with Chaffinches although I thought they were all clear now, I haven't noticed it on the ones that visit here for ages.

Super close up, Trev.
Many finches and small birds suffer from this foot problem.
Years ago when my father and I bred Canaries we experienced the problem too.
