Exotic blackbird?

Here’s me thinking I’ve spotted a real rarity – it turned out to be a leucistic blackbird skulking under a conifer in the garden. The bird had a nearly white head and some white speckles here and there, caused by undeveloped pigments I believe. Seen it before in local crows, although lots of other creatures can get it too I believe.
