Chaffinch

This chirpy chappy has been a regular visitor for quite some time now. As you can see his right leg is sticking out behind and he is unable to use it. He normally eats seed that is dropped from the feeders but when I see him I put a generous amount of seed on the ground as he can’t handle the feeders. He is more wary than the other birds but he appears to be quite healthy in all other respects and is very alert. Long may he survive.
