Hello everyone,

I recently saw this duck in Surrey in the UK and haven't been able to find out what it is yet.

Any help would be great,

Thanks!

Looks more like a female Mandarin Duck to me. I think they have feral populations in Britain, but not sure where.

No doubt someone will be along soon to provide more info!

Mandarin has had a feral population in Surrey, eg Virginia Water, for longer than I've been birding. It's where I first saw one about 43 years ago.
