Thanks sidknee, these 2 photo's were taken at Haddon Hill in Somerset (link below explains exact location). They are the common crossbill and I often see them there. I often go there because I hope to get the much much rarer 2-barred crossbill which I have got photo's off but only what I call record shots.
A closer location to you would be Staple-Hill, near Taunton. I often see them here. However, please note at both locations they are usually high up in the canopy and difficult to photograph but will on occasion come down to a puddle to drink. So a good tip is look for puddles near pine tree's.
