River Tyne area

Had a wander around the area of Newburn Business Park and the River Tyne. Just managed to catch the aftermath of the fox failed attempt to bag a heron (top left).
Had just spent time watching the Grey Wagtail when the fox caught my attention.In the same area were Redwing, Fieldfare, Curlew, Redshank, Grey Heron, Blackbird

Alongside Newcastle Business Park were Curlew, Shelduck, Teal, Cormorant, Mallard, Cormorant, Black Headed Gull

I'm guessing that the second from the left on the tree trunk below is the product of a Mallard and something else. Any comment?
