Rather witless finch

Observation - Rather witless finch - UK and Ireland. Description: This bird was unwilling to flutter/hop more than a few paces away from us each time we came close. It seemed to be foraging with some success, but gave the overall impression of being unwell or perhaps inexperienced - maybe a juvenile?
