Chaffinch, Female, Foot Growths

Observation - Chaffinch, Female, Foot Growths - UK and Ireland. Description: I think these growths are down to the Papillomavirus. I see quite a lot of infected birds, unfortunately. What the longer term prognosis fo individual birds is, I don't know; it the short term though the birds don't seem seriously affected.
