The male chaffinch is in full breeding plumage and looking very spic and span.  As you can see from his feet, like many Chaffinches he is suffering from fringilla papillomavirus - although this looks unsightly and may be a cause of irritation to the bird, it won't prevent the bird from being able to use its claws and apparently isn't fatal.
