Duck at Windsor

Update! Many thanks to Anni, Margaret and Eileen for giving me the name for the bird. It is an egyptian goose and native to Africa and imported to England, the Netherlands and Germany as ornamental birds (as read on Wikipedia). And the place where I saw the birds  was at Windsor racecourse in England so i think this fits as well. Maybe they had escaped from nearby Windsor castle?
