Possible Mealy/Common Redpoll.

 These are some poor quality photos of a Redpoll, possibly 2 , that seems to have characteristics of Mealy.

 The bird on the left has a long primary projection. I wonder what the wing length is!
 These were the first distance views that drew them to my attention. More white than the 20 or so Lessers that are also visiting the feeder.
Closer views. Plenty of grey around the head that also seems rather chunky. I wonder what weight it is!

 One or two other people have seen these and feel they look good for Mealy. I would appreciate any other views and most of all I would like the wind to drop so that I can catch one and get some measurements!!
