Are these photos, taken this afternoon at Cossington Meadows, male and female Gadwalls? They were considerably bigger than the Teals which were around with them. There was also an Egret which I assume is the Little Egret. I am sorry that the photos aren't very good.

Definately a Little Egret. The ducks are not Gadwall and I think they are Mallards.
