Willow Tit (not Tit Willow)

A few weeks ago I shared a post on Marsh Tits in Norfolk. This week I have the Willow Tit which is pretty darn difficult to separate in terms of looks. In fact it looks almost identical.
The Willow Tit has a larger bib (that bit under the bill). Whole white cheeks and a nice buff brown colour on the sides.
Pennington Flash came up trumps for me once again for this bird in Manchester. Usually very difficult to photograph due to its speed around the branches, I got lucky with this one.

    1. Hi Ian/ I use a Nikon D5100, and a NIKKOR 300mm f/4D IF-ED Lens with a 1.4 x teleconverter. I'd like a better camera, but I'm trying to save up. Can't beat sunlight though to help get those nice sharp images. :-)
