Unknown bird on larch

Photos show 2 birds on the top of a larch on a snowy day. Bird on right may be a chaffinch, one on left more a mystery. Has a distinctive white strip over eye on what seemed a dark head, long sharp narrow beak like a treecreeper's, red markings on neck and upper breast above stripey/speckled below. Not a robin, nor I believe a redpoll, too big for a redwing and too much red on upper breast?
