I saw this black and white duck yesterday in Nantwich and he was being very bossy with the mallards! There was also a lovely comorant further upstream.
Can anyone tell me what this duck is as even the local dogwalkers seemed mystified!

It could be a so called Magpie Duck, Caroline, which is a breed of domestic duck and is believed to have been first bred in the early 1900's
