Goldfinch with Fringilla papillomavirus

Fringilla papillomavirus is something we find mostly in Chaffinches, though it occasionally appears to infect other species (e.g. Yellowhammer see here and Bullfinch see here). This morning I caught an adult Goldfinch in my garden which showed the usual symptoms (trapped under BTO licence and following strict avian flu guidelines).
