Marsh or Willow

In today's Yorkshire Post my photographs of Marsh and Willow Tit are used to help illustrate an article about how to differentiate these species.  However, their calls are the most sure-fire way of telling them apart if you can't see the birds extremely clearly. 

Marsh Tit
Listen for the "pitchoo" sneezing call of this species 
Willow Tit
The nasal "chay-chay-chay" call of this species is very distnictive
