What Colin said together with two-toned cheek and an apparent pale spot at the base of the upper mandible makes this a clear Marsh Tit.

Definitely palustris. For example note pale spot at the base of upper mandible, two toned cheek, no apparent wing panel, general colour.

Sorry, sloppy look there. It does look suspicious. I don't think it is a tuftie but rather some hybrid then. Hm!

To be clear. madeira and feae (and desertas from feae by some?) are split from mollis. mollis is highly unprobable in the Atlantic why it is almost certainly one of the above species.

Well, to be honest it is probably hard to say for certain wether 3 & 4 (same bird?) is a WW or a Chiffchaff.

I really don't think we can say that for sure. Such a pale bird, seemingly pure white underneath, may well be a hybrid.

Probably impossible to say if it's a pure very pale Yellowhammer or a hybrid but pure Pine should be ruled out by those primaries.

I think that coverts looking like your Yellowhammers indeed rule out Pine but coverts like your Pine Buntings don't safely rule out pale Yellowhammers. ;-)

Easier to see yes, but is it very useful when distinguishing between Pine Bunting and Yellowhammer?

Impossible to say for certain from these pictures even though it well could be a Pine Bunting.

Jane, what do you mean with the median coverts? Or did you mean lesser?

Looks like a Willow Warbler to me. Not the best pics to judge wing length on but looks good enough. Everything else points to WW (legs, bill and overall colour).
