Hi, I saw this bird in my garden a couple of times over a period of a few days with a strange hooked black beak and managed to get a few photos. My personal thoughts are it could be a juvenile blackbird with a deformed beak, I have a bet on with two friends who think it is a juvenile thrush with a deformed beak! Aside from the bet I always love to be able to identify any wildlife I see so any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks
