F. Chaffinch or f. Greenfinch? UK (1 Viewer)

Hello again,

Just had a finch show up in the garden, took a few photos as I was unsure whether it was a female Chaffinch or a female Greenfinch, although my initial thought was Chaffinch. Sorry the photos are terrible (I'd blame the camera, but I'm a realist and I know that I'm rotten at taking photos). The wingbars were very yellow, and the bird has a greenish rump which doesn't show up in the photos but that fits with either species, I believe.
p.s. Thanks again to those who contributed on my last post, I've not replied as I didn't want to bump it to the top again!
