Possibly a Sombre Tit?

by Cliff Astrand
(England)

It was feeding in amongst other Tits like Coal Tits (which are showing a diverse amount of colours (browns, orange/brown) as well as normal to the chests), Blue Tits, Great Tit. It appeared to be on its own. Was a very quick feeder and was easily chased off by other birds.

I think this was the only shot that I got as the activity of the Coal Tits was chasing it away before I could focus.
I include some shots of the Coal Tits for cross reference.
Wish I had got a back shot but didn't know I had this shot until viewed on PC - It is probably a Coal Tit but it is unlike my reference books. Thanks for having a look.
