It looks a bit like some kind of mallard hybrid but I haven't noticed one on any recent visit.  On the other hand there are a few juvenile wood duck around.  These have eyebrows and unlike the adults are quite bland in front  -  something a bit older than the below.  The particular colour shown doesn't really match anything I can think of

Terry has shown me this photograph and I have told him what I think it is. I will be interested in other people's opinions.
