My mate has just brought this round for me to look at, I've never seen one before.

I've never even heard of one, definitely keep the photo.

Quick edit: Just shown "Her who knows all" apparently it's a luceism (not sure on spelling) a genetic mutation that can effect birds, supposedly the opposite of an albino.

Got to be fact, my Mrs told me.

Leucism, is the partial loss of pigmentation, in magpies this can go from your brown bird, right down to Albino.
