I believe this is a Muscovy duck; there were a few living in the grounds at Hornsbury Mill.
I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
Woderful shot. Excellent capture of the rare duck with nice composition. I've never seen it here.

@Etsu: Thanks Etsu, I've never seen one either, but apparently they aren't so rare here...

A nice capture of this character who seems to own the place.

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve, certainly untroubled by any people walking around!
The "Ugly Duck"! It surprised me the first time I saw one at the Showa Memorial Park at Tachikawa (Tokyo). It was big and placid, did not budge at all, no matter how close I got to it! Quite surprising to see it perched, did not think it could fly!!!

@Japanalia: I guess they fly when they want to Gabriela!
