Good morning folks,
Today I have uploaded a Willow Tit. This species is a regular visit to the feeding station.
I say Willow Tit as I am fairly sure that it is, but it could be a Marsh Tit, the two
species are very much alike and its the call that is I think the only sure way
of differenciating between them and as yet I haven't been able to do so.
Many thanks to those commented/voted on my previous offering, and special thanks
to Annette for her award.
Thanks for looking.
Colin

Well captured.
It does look a little more like a Willow T than a Marsh T (bib, cheeks, secondaries), but ... Smile

Hard to tell from the side Colin - but for ID Marsh have a slightly forked end in their tail- Willow the tail is square ended.

a great capture, seriously jealous!
here we don't get them, only marsh tits..
In dutch they are called the matkop matte head whereas the marsh tit is named the glossy head (glanskop), maybe that helps..
