Redpoll here on the right, with a Goldfinch.

I've missed several opportunities this year to see Lesser Redpolls. These images were taken at Watergrove Reservoir in Rochdale. I was on the hunt for a Marsh Tit at the time, but was more than happy to see one of these pitch up at the feeders. It is a very small finch (as you can see below alongside the Goldfinch). A lot easier to see in the winter when the leaves are off the trees, or of course when one lands on a feeder in front of you.
