Not sure if that's a Coalie Sid or a young Blue Tit, but what do I know I might be wrong again.

I'd also say Blue Tit and it certainly looks like it needs a good bath. On the subject of Blackbirds with deformed beaks one of my customers showed me a picture of a regular blackbird visitor to her garden, the top half of the beak was half the lenght of the bottom half and I'm sure I've seen other similar pictures of Blackbirds. Is this peculiar to Blackbirds or is it common in other birds?
