I need a little help with this bird. I saw loads of them, all pretty much plumaged like this. One guess is immature Linnet (Carduelis cannabina) but I am not sure at all. Sorry for the cruddy shots....it was misting and quite dark so photo conditions not good.
lousy photo but dark and raining at the time
In German: Buchfink
The Common Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), usually known simply as the Chaffinch is a common and widespread small passerine bird in the finch family. The male is brightly coloured with a blue-grey cap and rust-red underparts. The female is much duller in colouring but both sexes have two contrasting white wings-bars and white sides to the tail. The male bird has a strong voice and sings from exposed perches to attract a mate.
