When I saw the duck in the attached photo it was standing so that it's breast was out of the water. The breast looked odd and different to me, very speckled, so I snapped a couple of pics. Unfortunately I've deleted everything except this one photo and now looking at it this duck does not seem to be a Mallard like I originally thought. Sorry - photo is a huge crop. The bill is lighter at the base and gets darker towards the end and the striping on the head looks "different" too. I can't find many pictures of them, but from what I can find I think this could possibly be a male eclipse Garg
