Found this bird interested in my niger/nyjer seeds today (in Carlisle if that helps).
I am unsure as to which type of bird it is. I know that lesser redpolls are quite rare (less so in the winter to be fair but still rare) so I wanted to make sure that it is what an amateur professional thinks it is. I have also taken screenshots of the best moments of the videos that I took. I am really exited to know what you all think!
Hope this helps!

Thank you very much for confirming this. I am so exited to have seen my first redpoll! Hope you get to see some more coming back for the winter!
