Sorry, no pic. Small pretty brown bird, not many different markings, yellowish streak above the eye. finch style beak. On the seed feeder in a rural garden in South Wales. Could be a female linnet?

Pretty brown bird

Thanks, and yes I had considered a siskin as we do get them here.
But it was so brown all over, I couldn't see any black markings. I'll have to sit and watch and see if it reappears and try to get a photo.
