Not sure on #2 offhand, I'll take another look tomorrow.

The second pic reminds me of a female or juvernile Blue-winged Teal (Anas discors).

Ooops! Forgot to take that second look ;-)

Yep, I'd agree with Blue-winged Teal, though more likely an eclipse-plumage male. Was the pic taken in a zoo?


Edit: forgot to notice the title ;-) . . . Martin Mere has a collection of captive ducks, so yes, a zoo pic
