The one on the left is a teal

The other one is some sort of funky mallard

I'm putting the odd appearance of the teal down to distance, bright light and magnification. It did cross my head it might not be a real bird.

I am going by the size of the head which looks a bit big for
teal, but as you said not easy from this picture,when
in doubt I always say cross breed. lol
