Help to identify these birds, please

Excuse the blurry photo - I hope the markings are clear enough. This is the first time I've seen these two in my garden, and I'm not sure what they are.

We have frequent visits by greenfinches and sparrows, but the markings on these two are new to me. They're certainly finch sized, and were hopping about under the sunflower heart feeder. There are a few different nests in the surrounding trees, so it's possible that they're youngsters and haven't got their adult plumage yet. Any ideas?
