L551787 another Common

I have this bird down in my ringing book as an adult female Common Redpoll but on reflection looking at the pointed tail tips it could well be a first winter. Its certainly another Common Redpoll though and with a wing of 73mm and lacking any red on breast and rump a female. Many of the adult male Redpolls now have beautiful red underparts. A rather classic individual.
