I am quite confident here of a corncrake, a female moorhen and tufted ducks. The other ducks I am not so sure of but I am plumping for Gadwall

I'd say
1. Mallard - mainly drakes in eclipse
2. Tufted's
3. Moorhen or Coot juv
4. Pheasant poult - possibly a young male given the red-brown feathers starting to show, but a bit young to be certain.

Definitely Moorhen - although partly hidden in the veg, white flank stripe and undertail just visible
