Apologies if this is an obvious one, but even the rspb bird identifier hasn't helped me! Spotted these two by the Chesterfield Canal while I was on a run yesterday. Wasn't sure whether these are juveniles of something I can't fathom, so hoping someone may be able to help. Mallards should help with size comparison.
Closest I can find David is a Swedish Blue duck but wait for other opinions.
