Id Help please - Duck in Sweden

I am currently travelling in Sweden and came across this duck yesterday (16th July) in Sidsjon Lake in Sundsvall. I thought in may be a female summer long-tailed duck but not sure.

Welcome to BirdForum. Your bird is a female Mandarin Duck. This is an Asian species that has feral populations in Britain and northern Europe.
