Dabbling ducks - possibly shoveller?

Observed: 23rd December 2010 By: Darren GalpinDarren Galpin’s reputation in BirdsDarren Galpin’s reputation in Birds

Dabbling ducks seen on local lake. They look like they might be shoveller (female), but the plumage is wrong. Any ideas?

They are taking a long time to load up at the moment. Edit the observation and try again. Wait until you can see the "thumbnail" image appear.
It can be slooow like molasses!

I've cropped one of the ducks

I've cropped one of the ducks so that there is a thumbnail - hopefully that works better. The low light and distance the image was taken at makes it rather grainy though.
