Manky mallards

They look a bit like the Saxony breed shown here (if you scroll down)...

Thanks a lot Ophrys. I thought that they might be mallards, (but I didn't want to preempt people by putting it down as a possible ID). I think you've hit the nail on the head with the Saxony breed. Thanks for the website link - will certainly look at it again.
