On behalf of  Peter (who sent in an email) can anyone help to identify this bird?

Just seen an unusual bird in my garden this morning which is on the coast .Hayling Island. Thought at first it was a duckling. It wasn't. It hopped, Its back was green and it had a distinctive red or orange crest or band on its head. 

Any ideas
