Marsh Tit (Parus palustris) on a Log with 5p at Clumber Park, Notts

Marsh Tit (Parus palustris) on a branch with a 5p coin (he/she didn't put it there).

I'm not 100% sure this is not a Willow Tit ( Parus montanus) but it has the distinctive white mark at the base of the upper bill by the nostril and the white cheek patch does seem to be separate from the greyer neck patch.

(Not the same bird as in the previous shot).

Photo taken in Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire, in mid February.

 

Camera: Nikon D300

Lens: Nikon Af-S Ii 400mm F2.8 If-Ed + 2x converter
