feeding table with reliable Willow Tit? England (1 Viewer)

Please recommend a few sites in England where there is a feeding station or bird table that reliably attracts Willow Tit in the winter.

Or maybe one that attracts both Willow and Marsh Tit?

I am interested in getting good views and photographs of Willow Tit, in order to learn the visual ID features. A feeding table might best serve this purpose. Also, it would be a boon to see one next to a Marsh Tit (although I understand that their ranges do not overlap so much anymore).

Thanks.

Poor Judge of Pasta.
Bunting Hide at Pennington Flash Country park in Leigh, just west of Manchester is a pretty good bet. No Marsh there though, or almost never anyway.

Moore Nature Reserve near Warrington gets both. I've never had much luck with Willow there though, just Marsh.

My efforts with a bridge camera, inexpertly wielded, Willow at Pennington last year & this year, and Marsh at Moore, beginning of this year.
