January 22 2012 gold finch and other

Observation - January 22 2012 gold finch and other - UK and Ireland. Description: I am sure of the goldfinch but wonder if the bird on the right is a very pale greenfinch, since it is far paler (a pale grey) than any other greenfinch that I have seen, but seems to have the same tail pattern as a greenfinch.
