Female Chaffinch with webbed feet?

In my garden earlier I saw a female Chaffinch with pale green webbed feet.  Is this common or some kind of abberation?

  • Hi Keith,

    Sadly, the Chaffinch will have a disease,  sometimes it can be due to mites or warts which finches are particularly prone to.   here is some more information for you   HERE     and also HERE
