Another bird self portrait. I am no bird expert and am having difficulty identifying this bird. The back looks too grey for a marsh/willow tit.

Help please from the bird experts.

I do like your bird self portraits Phil. You will have to let us know the details. Could this be a young Coal Tit?

Thanks for the comment Dave. I saw a couple of these a few years ago, they are tiny only about the size of a wren. I have not been able to identify them at all yet.

I have found out the bird is a Willow Tit, there is a northern variation which is more grey than brown.
