White-breasted black ducks

Neither of my two bird books enabled me to identify these ducks. There were five or six of them on the waterway that leads out of Globe Pond. It's not a very good photograph but I should be able to track them down eventually.

They're ordinary mallards which have cross-bred with one or more breeds of domesticated mallard.

Which would explain why there's nothing about them in my books. Thanks very much for the information.
