Thornham Finches II (1 Viewer)

I went on another attempt to Thornham Harbour yesterday in an attempt to see some twite - nice day of birding, but I didn't find any interesting finch flocks until the sun was starting to set, hence bad grainy photographs. A local gentleman did mention there were twite there, but though I did hear one anomalous call in in amoungst the normal linnet twittering, I couldn't pick out what was making it, but just thought I'd get second opinions on the few that maybe had a smidge of potential?

Thanks in advance!

They all look like Linnet to me Alex, even with bad images such as these, I would expect to see a yellow ochre (mustardy) wash to the uppers and unders which I’m not seeing.

Cheers

Thanks for the help! I thought that was probably the case, but never hurts to double check.
