This duck was 150 yards out on a lake. With the camera I was trying to turn it into a Tufted Duck, but looking at the severely cropped images I think just a Ring-necked Duck.
What a difference between these Graylag Geese and the ones you see in parks in the U.S. I could not get within 200 meters of these birds before they flushed. These were wintering birds having reentry arrived from breeding populations in Iceland.
