Mealy or Lesser Redpoll? (1 Viewer)

I would appreciate help with the ID of this redpoll. My Collins field-guide was written before the species were split.
The photos were taken through the window of the visitor centre last Sunday (5 Jan) at the RSPB reserve at Saltholme near Middlesbrough.
Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike, nice mealy redpoll
 
Thanks James & Ian

Thanks James & Ian for your help. I was inclined to think it was Mealy, but was not entirely certain so it was good to get other opinions.
Thanks again
Mike
