Hello.Great pics!I saw what I thought (but wasn't certain) was a Willow tit on the feeders yesterday. You have recorded a Marsh tit. Do you think my bird was more likely a Marsh? I only got a brief glimpse!Thanks.
Hi Nick, thanks. Yes I'm sure it would have been a Marsh Tit. There has been one frequenting the feeders at Otmoor for a little while now. Marsh tit is a regular bird at Otmoor.Willow tit is a very rare bird in Oxon now. As far as i'm aware there is just one pair now at Grimsbury reservoir in Banbury.
Great - thanks! I will try to hang around longer next time to get a good look, but I was turning to ice yesterday! Lovely bird :-)
