Lesser spotted?

My partner and I found this bird near the lower hide. It was tiny , certainly much smaller than a great spotted , but were not sure what we photographed!

This bird was low on the trunk , but flitting , not typical of great spotted. Sorry about the picture quality but it was a long way off.

No red on this bird either , maybe a juvenile? I'd love to know what this bird is if anybody can please help.

    Hi, unfortunately this looks like a juvenile Great Tit. They can be strange birds just after fledging, often clinging to bark.
