There are two species here, 3 Tufted Duck and the rest young Mallard (I am fairly sure).

all tufted ducks - check beak?
Those to the left with the yellow on the bill are young Mallard. There is no way these are other than Anas.
... think you're right
Murdo, the other 4 look very much like juvenile Gadwall to me. Grey heads and orange, rather than yellow, bills. I could be wrong but have
another look and see what you think
I have tried to skirt around this one as I am not familiar with young Gadwall, but my first and continuing instinct is that they are Mallard. Ophrys should be definite about it if he drops in.
Sure these are Gadwall, the bills have even orange sides and the culmen is unbroken. (Of course I’m not talking about the Tufties.)
