Spotted this at Buckie harbour. It was swimming in a sea pool. Came quite close to us. At first thought something was in its beak, but unusual beak shape on closer look ??? What is it???

This is a Muscovy duck, known to the locals as Harold! He is very friendly and often fed by everyone who visits him!

Hello Moira! I think it looks like a Muscovy duck. They are a domestic breed so that's why it came so close to you. They are usually all shades and patterns of black, white and grey. But they all have a red, bumpy skin around their eyes down to their bill. He made have been an abandoned pet.
