I think I photographed this duck in England??

    I am organising old bird photos from travels in various parts of the world, and I ~think~ this photo is from England, but I haven't been able to identify the bird. Can anyone help me? John (Australia)

This is a domestic variant of a mallard Anas platyrhynchos. It is a very widespread species throughout the world.

Thanks! I'm very familiar with Mallrd's in many countries, but obviously not this domentic variant. The lack of any yellow in the bill and the presence of the white breast patch had me thinking along quite different lines.
