PARROT CROSSBILL identification

Jaane Aalto has corresponded with me further on Parrot Crossbill identification. I have sent the Finns a selection of the Sussex bird images and many agree with me about the concerns over the head structure and silhouette. We still need sound recordings. In every respect though, it resembles a Scottish Parrot Crossbill
