Can anyone tell me what these large ducks are? I have seen them in the same spot on the river Mersey in south Manchester regularly since January this year. They hang around with mallards but are much bigger and the female is completely different.
Hi CHT They are all Mallards, looks like some wild and some have domesticated/farm bird heritage. They can come in all sorts of varieties and breeds, you can see the curly tail feathers on some of them.
