Marsh or Willow? (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I put this on the UK Bird Identification page on Facebook yesterday and got a mixed response. I wondered what you guys think?

Thanks, Jonno

A brief visitor to the garden today, just long enough for me to grab my camera. Never had Marsh Tit before in the garden and used to have up to 4 Willow Tits 10 years ago before they built houses behind us. The small white dot on the front of the bill I think is food but I just make out a faint white mandible patch. The bird didn’t call. Sorry the pics are poor, these are all I could get. We are in Melton Mowbray, NE Leicestershire. Any thoughts out there please and thanks?
