1. Definitely an Egyptian Goose
2. Chiffchaff or Willow Warbler
3. Maybe a Tree Pipit or Meadow Pipit
4. Yes I think Dunnock
5. Could be a Reed Warbler - very difficult to tell apart from the Marsh Warbler, but the Reed Warbler is more redish-brown and the Marsh Warbler more olive-brown.


I'm still learning myself so not a great deal of help. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will be along soon with definite answers. Great photos by the way.

Do not adjust your mind
