hi Nick,
From your description this hybrid sounds rather tasty: -"flank of Teal, breast of Mallard", ... perhaps would make a nice "Meal"?

And following the recent theme of hybrid ducks in the Trafford area there was a very attractive male of what I would suggest was a Mallard X Teal. Smaller than the Mallard it was with but feeding in the same manner, undertail coverts and flanks of Teal, mantle and breast of Mallard and a head pattern that was a mixture of the two. Quite eyecatching!

Count low as birds were disturbed by 2 ships passing down the canal; the 68m WD Mersey suction hopper dredger and the 27m Norma plough dredger (which did a bloody U turn in the Sludge Loading Bay and caused havoc !!). It wasn't to be my day as both ships joined me for the WeBS count on Salford Quays as well !!

Also of note on the reserve;
1 Willow Tit
1 Great Spotted Woodpecker
1 Jay
8 Bullfinch
4 Lesser Redpoll
