Hybrid

Having looked at some images especially from the London Parks I think you are most probably correct. Just to complete your ID perhaps you should add a scientific name - Aythya fuligula x Netta rufina.

Thanks

Thanks Chris - wasn't sure how to go about adding the scientific name for a hybrid but it's obvious really isn't it! Have revised the ID accordingly.
