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!
