It might aswell be a Wilow Tit, there was a lake with a very swampy and marshy forest and there were growing Willows ,but mainly black alders,  aswell many other tree-species.

 Can anyone help with the correct ID, inspite the rather poor quality of the material?

I would agree this is a Marsh Tit - cap appears glossy, no obvious wing panel and there does appear to be a pale patch at the base of the upper manidble although this is by no means clear.  The black bib is however quite extensive, which is usually a better fit for Willow Wit.  I would still go with Marsh Tit.
