Baby bird ID, siskin? - UK

Hiya guys,
I was off shooting in Norfolk, UK about a week ago and found this cute little bird cleaning itself. Not entirely such what it is, would be great if someone could give a hand, at first we thought along the lines of baby siskin but not sure?

Thanks

Bill is too chunky, more like a house sparrow. Siskin would have a streaked breast, flanks and show a hint of yellowish green.
