On behalf of Judith who sent in an email:-

Large bird, about the size of a Canada Goose. One of a pair, other bird had no red on its face. Seen on estuary grass.

Can anyone identify?

Unfortunately the image is from a distance and not too clear but I would suggest it is a Muscovy duck. They do vary a lot in colour and markings but a black body with white head and neck is not uncommon.
