I think this is a Marsh Tit (Poecile palustris) taken in the garden today (I braved the bitter cold and sat in the chair hide for an hour - brrr!). Have read the differences between Marsh and Willow Tit and am still not absolutely sure, so have submitted 3 views in case anybody can make a definite identification Wink Fun mousing across the versions!

Many thanks for your great response to my Robin upload - very much appreciated as always.

I agree, a marsh tit (it doesn't have the pale wing panel). Lovely shots! Smile

Congratulations Sylvia, you must be thrilled with these images,
all very well detailed with excellent light/colour, V2 a real beauty, deserving an upload on its own.

Three super images. A lot on here are shown with completely "clean" backgrounds which is fine. However with these three I think the soft natural background actually enhances the subject and I don't find the background distracting at all. Love each of the equally

Three well detailed images Sylvia, i can only agree with Mike. it's nice to see a bit of natural b/g. Looks like a Marsh Tit as it has no pale wing bars but never easy to disinguish between them,
