The nearest I can pair the Photo to is the " Chaffinch "...Males have a very brightly coloured blue-grey head and a reddish-pink breast...its call is an unmistakeable pink-piink sound...

No, definitely not a chaffinch ...the whole breast and belly ( on the male ) would be a rosy colour.... I think the birds are linnets.

I had my doubts when I replied to that Thread but I was going on the " Top 20 Irish Birds " Booklet and the Chaffinch was the nearest to the Photo...going back over the Booklet the " Linnet " is not even mentioned in it which is rather strange for an Irish Publication.
