Marsh Tit feeding on Burdock seeds

This is the first Marsh Tit I have seen at Ferry meadows CP for several years. It is presumably the same individual that Don Gardener and Andy Frost have seen on a few occasions in the treed areas on the south side of Gunwade Lake in recent weeks. It was feeding on Burdock seeds, offering by hovering, returning to the same 'weedy' patch again and again. Indeed there were other birds in the little patch on the flanks of The Mound foraging among its semi-wildness. However, the next day, it had been mown flat!
