Yes you are right, it's not a Greenfinch, but rather a Female Lesser Goldfinch because of the white patch on it's wing.
Many thanks for the info, I'm obviously going to have to find myself a more detailed bird book.

Don't worry, up until a couple of months ago when I started snapping the local birdies, I had no clue either. We may not have anything exotic around here (unless someone's pet parrot escapes!), but there are so many varieties of finches and tits, it takes a while to be able to identify them easily.

Good morning

First post on here, the bird in the pic is a female Chaffinch, the white shoulder patch being the key identification feature.
Here`s a pic of a male......you cant really see on this pic but the male has a gorgeous blue crown, and the same white shoulder.

As I've never observed any male goldfinches in that particular area, but have often seen male chaffinches, I think the bird is most likely a female chaffinch. Therefore the virtual chocolate chip cookies are awarded to Mark!

Many thanks to everyone who tried to help me out.
