It definitely has a fringillid taste (carduelis sp. or fringilla sp.),
even though
I doubt it's a Greenfinch.
[But there are Greenfinch's calls in the background, e.g. at 20", 26",
29", and almost permanently after 35".]

My best bet was Eurasian Siskin, but I was not convinced.
I asked people more knowledgeable than me, and got a
satisfactory answer: It's a Common Redpoll _Carduelis flammea_/

Listen to:

All the best.
