Tufted Duck with attitude

Many of you may have seen this bird already but today was my first sighting at Slapton Ley.  Thought that it was a tufted duck until I caught sight of the red "punk" hairdo!  Is this a hybrid tufted duck/crested potchard, or some species I am unaware of?

Crested/Tufted Pochard/Duck?
