Cheers :) I think the main thing on this shot was the cheek change in colour where I believe The Willow it more of a constant band?
I look for a smaller black bib (which looks right in this one) and a glossier black head, but it's easier to say than to do.

The almost foolproof (a researched 97%) way to tell the difference is, if there’s a tiny light patch on the cutting edge of the upper beak, it’s a Marsh tit.
Lovely shots, of all the garden birds we had in France, it’s these guys (and my curl buntings) I miss the most.
