Many years ago I killed a grey duck, currently on my wall, with a white ring around his neck like this one...not quite as heavy white, but very noticable. Although this widgeon could have a little pintail mix, I believe it is probably just a very old widgeon. The same thing goes for my grey duck...no other characteristics of another species, just the white ring around the neck which may be because the bird was very old???
