Question Hybrid duck?

Can anyone tell me if this is a hybrid duck of some kind? It arrived in Drammen's Fjord, Norway earlier this year and has been seen around ever since.

This is a domestic Muscovy Duck (Cairina moschata), not a hybrid...

Thank you for your response, having looked at more pictures of Muscovy ducks, I agree that this would seem the most likely explanation. Regards, A.
