One of the Greenfinch was interesting as it had a dead foot. It looked that it had broken its leg just above the foot with the foot only hanging on by a length of skin and with no blood supply and dying. Otherwise the bird appeared to be in good condition with a wing length of 88 mm and a weight of 27.7 g. We removed the foot as it must have been a hindrance.
