    Drake Mallard. Note the upperwing pattern in flight, and also the green head, white collar, chestnut breast and yellow bill in your second photo. Even in eclipse plumage the males will retain this yellow bill colour, enabling you to tell them from the females (more orangey bill, often with extensive dusky areas).
