Marsh tits and robin


Marsh tit, 25 January 2016

On 25 January 2016, again to Gooilust. Not just the usual tit species, blue tit and great tit, but also a group of rarer marsh tits in a tree.

That is, if they were really marsh tits, not willow tits. Based on this discussion and people recording marsh tits, not willow tits in Gooilust on waarneming.nl I made the difficult decision on these two species which are so similar, to finally decide for marsh tits.

A bit further, a nuthatch on the footpath.

Jays calling. Great spotted woodpecker sounds.

Snowdrop flowers.

Robin, Gooilust, 25 January 2016

Still further, near the manor, this beautiful robin in a rhododendron shrub.
