Geoff,
I've re-checked the RAW files of this and other shots taken at the same time and no more of the feet can be seen. I've cropped upto the visible part of the foot. The rest of the feet are hidden by feathers and the grass, which I've cropped out

What a tatty looking fellow, fantastic detail and colours of his plumage. A great image. I love these birds large feet shame they were hidden in the grass when you took the image.
