Looks like a cross mallard/khaki cambell to me, definitely not mallard, she has too much brown and white on her for mallard. There is a breed of duck that walks upright, they are Indian Runners, they are very upright though and very funny to watch when they walk. I like ducks whatever colour and breed they are, they are so good with their young ones.

I was recently sat in my truck at work on a pedestrian zone in Stafford town centre and a cheeky duck appeared at the side of my cab.. I spoke to it lol and it tried to fly up and in my window. I spoke to it again and it enjoyed a bit of my lunch and again tried to fly up and in my window.. Then the cheeky beggar sat in front of my truck and wouldn't let me drive off till it got more of my lunch.. I've seen the same one a few times since so when im in that area i take an extra sandwich or two..

Hi Mallard males have a very deep petrel blue/green head very shiny and looking like satin whereas the female is a very ordinary brown colour.
