Nicely done Wallace, like the composition and nice detail.

Thanks Bill, I appreciate your comments.

Cracking shot, Kate. I have yet to get a good one of this species.

Wow! First time I've seen a juvenile. It doesn't look a bit like the adult!

You know, pcs, I think you must have enticed all the European Chaffinches to your patch! We haven't seen any here this year. Unless it's the same little chap hanging around.;-)a Incidentally, I don't know if it's just me, but most of your shots are coming up rather dark on my screen, unfortunately, although they didn't used to...

Willow versus Marsh? Well, I did hope it might be Willow, but a search online revealed a few "tells", including a white spot on the cutting edge of the upper mandible, close to the body; the bottom edge of the black bib cut off fairly tidily, rather than spreading down the breast; and a somewhat glossy black cap, all of which the Willow doesn't have. Apparently the song/call is a bit different, too, but I didn't take much notice at the time.

Yes, that pale patch at the base of the bill is diagnostic and apparently the only feature that is 100% reliable. It shows up well in photos, but I find it next to impossible to see in the field. The more bull-necked appearance of Willow Tit and its generally looser-looking feathering are further helps in distinguishing from Marsh.

Thank you, Jack. There were quite a few around Eyewoth Pond, Hants - people put seeds etc down for the ducks* et al - and we got lots of shots of Marsh, Blue and Cole Tits. They were fairly tolerant of people.

*none of your bête noir, Golden Eye, though!

That's what I suspected! Now I've got a seasonal robin but not much more(occasionally a dunnock). It's colder now so who knows this weekend?

I'll check the darkness, maybe my screen is set to light(working on laptop), the background is also a lot darker in real life.
