Probable young Linnet,carduelis cannaniba - ID not confirmed

My first thought on this bird was Twite,but pink legs are confusing . My second thought was Corn Bunting but song was wrong , it definately sounded like a Twite . Habitat was open countryside in NE of England . Any help would be appreciated . Everything about the bird shouted Twite at me but leg colour does not seem right .

 

Am calling this a juvenile Linnet

 

C'mon Ger one for you !
