Excellent BIF series Danny. Can't make up my mind about the ID though Very strong markings for a mallard and a very dark bill. Cant see the blue wing flashes either. Looks wrong for Pacific Black Duck as well, legs are the wrong colour. Hybrid maybe?

Checking the internet here and here It looks very much like the Grey Duck/Mallard hybrid.

Still looks wrong to me Danny The pale unmarked throat, bill colour etc. I think they are great shots though

Found this one Kevin, but it might not be right also of course Government duck shooting site of all things.

https://www.teara.govt.nz/en/photogr...-mallard-ducks

You might well be right.
