Bird Watchers I need you !!!

Took a short walk over the old Spey Bridge Railway line today spotted some birds/ducks but really unsure what they are.The close ups are grainy but any help will be gratefully received.

General view of the bridge

I know this is grainy but I am stumped as to what they are.

Looks like Teal to me.  A bit dark on this CRT monitor at work....lol.    I'll come back later when I'm on my laptop.

Hello Alison

Yep Kev is right (as usual) Teal.  Pretty ducks. (Taken with a Bridge Camera of course!!) Lol

Definitely Teal. The triangle of white on the rump and the white line under the eye are the give aways. Good capture, so many look the same and it's only the little things that set them apart.

Hi Alison

The guys are right of course, they are Teal. 

That is a great place to go for a walk.  I was there once in the early summer and saw lots of butterflies that I have never seen anywhere else.  You also have a good chance of spotting one of the Ospreys at the estuary.

I will have to get back there sometime.
