Hi, Buddy is now just over 8 weeks old, the bottom half of his beak is black. I've heard this is ok and normally sorts itself out. Does anyone know if it's normal and what it means?

Here's the best picture I have (apologies for the fuzziness) he was pretty active yesterday unless I sat there talking to him, when he would come up to the bars to listen.

No need to worry, your Buddy has an excess of melanin on his beak and this is very common in baby budgies. In the next couple of weeks you will see the beak will get progressively clear from the black pigment. :)
