Please can anyone identify these 11 ducks on our bank this evening? They were like a golden eye but Much bigger (all I can compare with in the pic is the buttercups). About as big as a domestic Rouen, much bigger than a mallard and with a thin snakey neck like a grebe.( But wrong colour.) Not seen them before. Looked like a dominant male and female and 9 young but all had distinctive ruddy heads and cannot be 11 males... nor surely11 female Goosanders. I am stymied
