Yellow Orange Rosefinch? a rare bird!

The rare Common Rosefinch
Carodacus erythinus
 We had 5 Rosefinch in our garden 2 female/juv, 2 bright red males & this odd yellow/orange one.

I found them in our garden while Dad was away in Shetland, so I took some photos.

The orange Rosefinch was just ace!
