Yes, that’s an adult Lesser Redpoll. It is by far the most abundant redpoll sp. in the UK. To differentiate from the Common (Mealy), note the brownish wash, very streaky overall, and less contrast on the upperparts. Hoaries are much more white and don’t have streaking on the undertail coverts.

However, I believe that all of the redpoll species should be lumped together. It’s a wonder why they didn’t do that already...
