INTERESTING DUCKS FOUND IN ST. JAMES PARK, LONDON

Do you have any ideas what this duck is?  I have never seen their kind before.  I don't have time to do any research right now and if you can ID these cute water birds, thank you in advance.














Added Note 7-26-15: I knew I could count on our blogging community and their generosity of sharing their knowledge.  Thanks to several commentors I now know that this very interesting duck is the Red-crested Pochard.

I am sharing with the following memes.  Thank you to all our hosts for making them a very enjoyable part of blogging. You can see other participants by visiting their links.

  7. Well the weather in the UK today was great for ducks ... rain, rain and more rain - umbrellas were needed and a good pair of boots too.

    But alas I do not know which ducks your lovely photo's show here, perhaps someone else does and can share the knowledge with us.

    In the meantime Happy Weekend Wishes

    All the best Jan

    Denise, amazing images!! This is a highly unusual duck I'd think. I've only seen them in zoos. Thanks for sharing the link at I'd Rather B Birdin'
