Mallard ducks

A group of mallard ducks. Males have the striking bottle green head. Not really sure though if the less colourful ones that are speckled brown are young mallard ducks or female mallard ducks.

At this time of the year juvenile mallard have gone through a moult, therefore, the brown ones must be females.
