Odd Green Woodpecker[s] - update

A follow up re my melanisitc Green Woodpecker of 8th Jun. I thought I had it again today when a dark looking Green Pecker came & landed on a post by the dragonfly pond, whilst I was sitting on the bench opposite. Hence I got a better shot and I think it's a different bird, but still with unusually dark plumage for a Green Pecker. I've posted both photos here to compare. The second one is clearly a male [red in moustache] and does have some green tinges on the upper parts but there's still a lot of very dark plumage there. Any thoughts? Agree they re diff birds? Top bird was on the 8th, bottom bird today.
