I said that I'd seen two new visitors to the garden, the first being a redwing (as detailed yesterday) and the second a bullfinch which I'll cover today. 

I'm afraid I didn't get a very good photo of it, for which I apologise, but it's clearly a bullfinch and nothing else. About the only thing you could reasonably confuse it with is a chaffinch, but don't let the RSPB's chaffinch drawing on that page fool you – they're not nearly that red in reality! Even if they were, the very black cap and beak of this example marks it out clearly as a bullfinch. The other shot I got before it flew off wasn't much better sadly.
