Love the capture Effrossini but they are Geese not ducks, they could be Snow Geese and a Graylag Goose, I am no expert so not sure the species.

I love this time of year when the geese return.They are noisy and come across as grumpy.
They cackle at the least bit of disturbance.Football fields in their hundreds all enjoying the grass.
Then when they take flight as one,,,WOW..
I wonder is the youngest yet to get its white plumage,,very nice.
