Strange duck - ID please - Bucharest, Romania

I saw this bird today in a large park in Bucharest. All the other birds were wild birds (malards, cormorants, gulls etc).
Is this a hybrid or a domesticated duck?
Thank you for help.

I reckon a farmyard somewhere is missing a duck!

This is a cross between a Mallard and a farmyard/ domesticated duck which are usually white.

THis is a type of farmyard duck sometimes called a cayuga duck.
