This is Ducky McDuckface, Lisl!
Lisl: I knew you would have the answer, Ray!
It is showing you its strong profile.
Lisl: He was boss of two female Aylesbury Ducks and three ducklings
Sorry, we are no help, Elisabeth. Nice photo of it though.
Lisl: Quite different from any duck I have seen before, and that includes hybrids, thank you, Frank
Not I - but he's certainly handsome and this is a lovely shot!
Lisl: Thank you, Elizabeth - he seemed to know he looked good

I think this is the floating species of the McDuckies...
A wonderful portrait though.
Lisl: Thank you for your valued contribution, Astrid!!
Once you find out, Lisl, please let us all know!
Lisl: I will, Ginnie, but I don't have much hope, unless Moth Richard sees it

Haven't a clue Lisl, that bill is slightly Shoveller-like
Lisl: You are right, Chris. Yet I am not sure it is a hybrid

J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de ce canard.
Lisl: He was very smart indeed, and he knew it, Martine

I can only say: a feathery thing. A very good image!
Lisl: Thank you, Philine - yes, very feathery

On dirait qu'il fait le beau pour faire plaisir au photographe ?
J'aime bien les canards.
Lisl: Tu pourrais avoir raison! Moi aussi!
I've got no idea either Lisl, but it is certainly very prettily patterend.
Lisl: Quite a dandy, eh?

What ever it is, he is rather lovely, what a delicate shade of grey his wing feathers are.
Lisl: It looks as if I had changed the colour, but he really was that shade of grey

There is such a thing as a pied call duck. Mostly domesticated and a bit smaller than a normal duck. I am not sure that your duck complies. It is probably the result of some fowl play on the farmyard.
Lisl: I think you are probably right, Louis

My knowledge of ducks breeds is almost as bad as my knowledge of flowers so I can't help, I'm afraid. You've caught some lovely detail in the feathers.
Lisl: Thank you, Alan. I know I can always come to you for advice on cream teas, so you don't have to be knowledgeable on ducks as well!
I can only guess it's a mutated Mallard.
Lisl: Thank you, Tom - it certainly is the right size and shape
It is one of mixed heritage most likely but I see mallard and your (white or something) headed duck.
Lisl: Perhaps even white Ayslesbury - he had two Aylesbury partners

He is a little bit to curled up for me to try and assess what species he is.
Lisl: I can understand that, Cherie
