Question Does my budgie have MITES?

Hi all

I've just recently brought home my first and only budgie, called winston

He's been home around 3 weeks and is starting to settle in.
If I rub his belly, he jumps on a stick and flys around the room every other day.

Appears to be happy, not chirping much yet though.

Anyway, i've noticed this morning he was scratching a lot! And I saw him rub his head on the cage.

His cere looks a little crusty and his beak too.

Can't see mites moving at the bottom of the cage. Took a video and photo for you to have a look, as some of you may be able to see if this is normal.

Not sure what's normal as haven't had a budgie before.

Thanks in advance!
