Bird Identification.

I live on farmland.  I have been having a small flock of linnets come and sit in the garden hedge. 

Today I have seen a smaller bird, and rather than it being a linnet, I am wondering if it may be a lesser redpoll.

A second bird flew over and likewise seemed small and they immediately flew off together.  These are some photos of the first bird.

I had also taken the photograph below,of the back of a bird a week earlier which may be relevant.  We had a lesser redpoll identified in the same hedge in 2022.

So could this be a lesser redpoll or is it a linnet?
