Birds of East Point Mangrove Boardwalk, NT Australia, Aug 2017

Photos 1 & 2 - Same individual. Is this a Lemon-bellied Flycatcher?

Photos 3 & 4 - Same individual. At first I thought this was another Grey Whistler but the bill seemed longer, slimmer and not as "chunky" like that on the Grey Whistler. Could this be a Mangrove Gerygone? The red iris also fits a Mangrove Gerygone?

Photo 5 - Torresian Kingfisher?

Help appreciated!

Agree with lemon-bellied Fly. Not sure about the gerygone, but lack of pale fore-superciliumin first pic might point to Large-billed, rather than Mangrove. Yes, agree with Torresian (if that's the split of Collared Kingfisher that's in NT)

Thanks for confirmation, Larry!
Hope some of the Australian forum members will confirm one way or another on the Gerygone.

Here is some info I found on the split of the Kingfisher :
