Finch

If it was that size, and bearing in mind the appearance of a heavy beak, it may be Common Rosefinch.

Rosefinch

It looks very good for a Common Rosefinch to me, but I don't think that there is enough detail visible in the photo to confirm this.

I'm therefore going to agree with both of the identifications that have so far been posted - it's definitely a finch, and it might be a Common Rosefinch.
