Pale duck

Observation - Pale duck - UK and Ireland. Description: This is certainly a duck, but I can't work out which species. About the same size as a mallard. Brown head and neck with no distinctive markings, and very pale brown/cream all over the body. Black beak. Could be a female or a juvenile.
