Description

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.

Description from Wikipedia

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.
