This image was captured at Kelly's on 26 November 2019. It was not until
I had a good look at the image on the screen that I noticed what I
thought might be an unusual tan colour on the parent bird.

It could be the result of water staining, but adjacent Grey Teal did not
have the same colour pattern/staining on their plumage.

I assume that bird recorders may have been popping in Pacific Black Duck
+ 2 ducklings. But could the parent bird be a hybrid?
