Unidentified wildfowl (London) - struggling to identify, maybe overseas visitor?

Hi

Really struggling to identify this duck..

It was mooching about on its own at a nearby pond, keeping its distance from the usual resident Mallards/Canada Geese/Tufted ducks/Coots (at one point a Coot gave it a good chase!)

Does anyone know what it might be?

Cheers
Michael
