This marsh tit was photographed near my feeders. What is in its beak?

The feeders have niger seed, peanuts, sunflower seed kernels, fat balls. The marsh tits tend to take a whole sunflower kernel and fly off. Its beakfull does not look like any of these.

I have identified it as a Marsh Tit rather than a willow Tit because of the glossy head, squared tail and lack of light panel on the wing. See the third picture, which is a different bird. Perhaps I have both?
