Cross Breed Newcomers

Just arrived on the river this morning, 5 newcomers. Don't know if they were put in the river, or made their way from a farm perhaps . 

They appear to be cross bred Mallards with a domestic duck variety. 

Larger than wild mallards, there are 3 females and 2 drakes. 

They turned up as I was feeding the resident flock. This evening they joined in the feeding session. 

The two dark ones are female as you can hear in the short video below. They are obviously used to humans and other ducks, and quite feisty too.
