This one does not seem to be a Falcated duck, it seems to be a hybrid Falcated duck x Eurasian wigeon:

It has a partly bluegrey bill, a broad black neck ring with no white below, and a pinkish hue to the breast.

compare with Falcated at a distance:

Even at a distance Falcated has a black bill, a thin black neck ring and a grey patterned breast.

and compare with drawings Falcated x Eurasian Wigeon:

and a picture of a sleeping hybrid, also with sleeping individuals of the parent species:

Hi,
The observers also think it's a hybrid Falcated Duck x Eurasian Wigeon:

I have added this hybrid to the species list and changed the id. (not yet for the other 2 observations)
