Tail

The forked tail only narrows it down to a finch. I'd need to rule out Siskin from the photo, but I'm struggling to judge the colour clearly.

Ooops

Sorry Ian, your comment wasn't showing when I added my ID, perhaps should have refreshed the screen. Chris.

Siskin

No worries, Chris...I was not sure, as I struggle to judge greeny colours, so would not have offered an identification, just a comment.
