Findlay, that odd duck looks like the ones here when a mallard and a white barnyard type duck crossbreed. The young ones have plumage from both parents.I like your goosander, they are called mergansers here in North America, I took pictures of one the other day myself.
You know....ducks and geese crossbreed. You may have one of those in the pics. I had something similiar happen to me awhile back. I was trying ID and had to speak with a birder....and that's when I learned about that dealio:) Very interesting. Lovely sunny pics!
Thanks for your help
Great pictures you show.Hanne Bente
