Mealy Redpoll

Thanks to Chris Acheson for these pics of a Mealy Redpoll, photographed and ringed in his garden in Dunmurry on the 17th February.
In the bottom pic, the Mealy is the left hand bird whilst our nominate Lesser is on the right.
Such pics of Mealy Redpoll in NI are uncommon but go to show that even in your garden, there are rare birds to be found!
