Does anyone know what this is?
Have been looking through all our books, but cannot find out what this bird is!
Similar size to a sparrow, but looks like a tit of some sort, but also has long beak.
Any suggestions to what this is would be greatly appreciated!!

It's a Great Tit with a deformed bill. It happens relatively often but the birds probably have trouble finding food during the winter and don't survive.

I feel like we get a lot of these sorts of postings with people noticing birds with deformed bills.
