Duck and Parrot - Lanzarote 2011

Not sure about these two, the duck is probably a mallard but as Black Duck is a possibility I'd really like to be sure to avoid throwing away a lifer.
The parrot has me stumped as according to 'Birds of the Atlantic Islands' I should only find rose-ringed parakeet or monk parakeet on the island. However neither seem to have a white eye ring? There were around 30 of these birds that flew across our hotel garden morning and evening, never stopping for more than a moment or two hence the shoddy pictures.

Keith,

Looks like a Mallard hybrid / domestic to me. Parrot could be some kind of conure??

Parrot might be Nanday Parakeet.

The parrots didn't have a dark head pattern like the nanday parakeet, the head was all the same shade of green.

It looks like it might be a Blue-crowned Parakeet.
