There seem to be lots of Lesser Redpolls (cabaret) around, locally, this autumn. This bird is pale and shows features of Common Redpoll (flammea), like a whitish wing bar, pale rump and generally rather pale upperparts. But, it is small and not as pale as some obvious flammea. Some of these can be quite difficult to decide upon and I would not want to say whether this one is cabaret or flammea.
