Marsh Tit

By Dee_licious1
Taken at Coombe Abbey (no surprise there!). I believe this is a Marsh Tit (no white markings on the wing or white stripe down the back of the head which would denote a Coal Tit), although if you know differently then please let me know.

Did some selective post production work, shadows/highlights, curves, cloning out twigs and USM.

Big is much better.

Any advice would be gratefuly received.

Thank you for looking.

Dee

Actually it was Chris (sooty36) who pointed out it was a Marsh Tit and not a Coal Tit as I first thought.

Luckily he bought us a little bird book on a previous visit to Coombe Abbey (Usborne Spotter's Guides - Birds) and had been checking up on our bird pics.

Lovely shot, I have been hoping to get a Marsh Tit around our way to pose on my catkin stage recently, but to no avail. If it eventually happens I hope it comes out as good as this.
