Hope someone can help, I snapped this brown and white fella at Wilson Botanic Gardens in Berwick.

Hi Tommy, given the bill and feet colour with a solid brown head colour and mottled body, my guess would be a Mallard Hybrid, with another unknown species. Male Mallard would have that lovely green head, with the female tending to be a duller brown coulour.

Maybe someone else can be more specific?
