Male Mallard? I'm opting for a dabbling duck! No doubt wrong as usual

Not a Dabchick Judith, nor a Goldeneye Steve & Martin and not a Mallard Dora,

I am not trying to mislead in the title, the weather was just nice for it. It may or may not be a dabbler and may or may not be a duck, no clues here folks!
