Black-winged stilt and ? ducks

I took this at Eaglby wetland along the river walk, they were on the otherside so hard to photograph. I know there is black-wing stilts but not sure what the ducks are.

Judging by the size and shape of the white areas on their throat, probably Grey Teal. Grey Teal and Chestnut Teal are nastily hard to tell apart, they look almost identical. Plus, none of the birds have the features of a male Chestnut teal, eclipse or otherwise (you could get both this time of year).
