I wonder if anyone identify this one for me? It was feeding on some seed put out on a post in Sherwood Forest. I can't distinguish between the Marsh TIt and WIllow Tit. The photo is a bit blurred unfortunately, but they don't sit still for very long!

Difficult to tell, but I suspect marsh tit, too. Head looks large like willow tit's, but that may be because of the angle. Light patch on the secondaries (which is typical to willow tits) seems to be missing.
