the white area around the eye is very large, could it be a female Wood Duck?

Ditto to female Wood Duck; presumably an escape (don't think there's any established feral populations this side of the Atlantic?)

Can exclude eclipse drake as that would have a red/pink bill

Agree with female Wood Duck. Also eclipse male or Julie male would sport a White bridle marking
