That's lovely. It is the Willow Tit, as it has stronger body colour than the Marsh.

Not sure that body colour is a defining feature. I'm thinking Marsh due to the pale spot on the beak.

Lovely clarity, detail and pose, Colin, but I am sure that it is a Marsh.
A short while ago Graham (Graham_P) mentioned that he had read that a feature distinguishing the Marsh from the Willow was that the Marsh had a pale flashing of colour at the base of the beak on the upper mandible and this feature seems to show very clearly on your image.
