Hi Mandy
Wow, great picture, thanks for that!
Definitely confusing at first sight!
The RSPB has some information about albinism, follow the link here to get to understand your visitor!

Let us know if it comes back. I would be very interested in knowing if it manages to get a partner, more studies need to be done on how albinism affects chances of mating in birds.
