Definitely not a Coal Tit, so is it Marsh or Willow? Aaargh! - I hate having to decide between Marsh and Willow, the differences are so subtle. The guide books point out the differences, but to me, when faced with the real thing, I find it very difficult.
So Sheila, I'm gonna sit on the fence and see what everybody else thinks!!! :-)

I've not knowingly seen either but rather fancy a Marsh Tit as I feel a light patch is appearing at the base of the beak in original picture.

thanks everyone ....John....good link and as I see quite a bit of this bird have come to the conclusion (rightly or wrongly) that is is a willow.... mainly because of the shape of the bird....and the colouring and scruffiness of feathers.....
