My partner snapped these on a very wintery day. We had not noticed them on the feeders before. Plus we had a new camera, with better zoom, for Christmas. Never seen this bird before.

do you have a higher resolution version of the image as this version is rather too small to see the details on the birds

Too dark for Common Redpoll

These are fairly dark, very brown looking birds which makes them Lesser Redpolls. Common/Mealy Redpolls are paler greyer toned birds with more white/pale on the underparts and rump.
