This chaffinch has a damaged right leg and has to hold it out behind him to try to keep his balance. This is one of his favourite spots, presumably because he can sit with his leg supported straight out along the fence post. My first photograph of him was in January this year and he has done well through some hard winter weather. He isn’t able to use the bird feeders because of his disability but I do put seed into a ground feeder when I see him and he is straight in there. Long may he survive.
