I saw this duck feeding amongst Mallards at Budworth Mere at Marbury Country Park in Cheshire this afternoon the tail was always raised as shown in my images.

Hi,
I don't know what is a thingy aka yuck duck, but it looks like a hybrid between Mallard and Muscovy Duck (domestic)!
Cheers

C'est pas ma faute, je suis anglais.
strange hybrid thing - the beak puts me in mind of a pochard (though nothing else in it does!)

I would agree with mallard x muscovy , due to the domestic variants involved this is one of the most variable hybrids...
