The photo on the left depicts two Redpolls (in my opinion, both Lesser), a Goldfinch and a Greenfinch. The lower Redpoll, does have a slightly frosty appearance suggesting Common, but it's probably within the range of Lesser, which would be the default choice. Perhaps the observer saw it better though. The right hand photo is of 3 Greenfinches, a Goldfinch and a Redpoll, again probably Lesser.
