Chestnut Teal or Grey Teal?

I was looking at uploading and keywording a couple of new bird photos to Flickr and looking back I realised I may have incorrectly named a Grey Teal as a Chestnut Teal female. It was hanging around with a Chestnut Teal male. Could someone please confirm the first bird is a Grey Teal. I believe the second bird to be a Chestnut Teal female. Thank you.

I agree as the white throat and chin on the first bird are indicative of a Grey Teal. The second bird lacks this white and is a Chestnut Teal. Always find these need a careful look.
