Brown mottled duck with large orange bill. Speculum not visible. Bill seems large for a mallard but I'm not sure it's large enough for a shoveler.
No interactions present.
The Shoveler is following a Wigeon I think!

Thanks Alan, that would have been my next question!
thanks guys, I've never been very sure of id-ing a shoveler.
All of the ducks look the same to me at this time of year. However, the dead giveaway is the huge, it just doesn't look right, bill on the shoveler.
