The ducks on the Thames

One of the pleasures of living in a town with a park by the Thames is that you can experience its avian and aquatic wildlife. If the red kites are the local avian neighbours on the mainland, ducks are the ones on the river. Like these two, which I see last week. The one on the back is a mallard, the other I don't know, so if you have an idea please tell me in a comment. Unlike red kites though, ducks do not shy away from human presence. These two went on the boat you see on the right to dry their feet and take a rest. I think I'd like to own a boat just so I could look at the ducks and socialize with them. Probably by feeding them, an activity I used to do fairly often. Now I mostly look at them.
