New lens - help identify these

My first chance to try out my Canon 100-400 today (some pics here http://www.pbase.com/tirc/100_400_test)

What warbler is this and is the other (2 pics) an osprey?

The warbler looks like a Reed Warbler and the other birds a Lapwing isn't it?

Reed Warbler.

Other two, as far away from Osprey you can get, they are Lapwings

Good Luck!

Thanks. It caused great consternation amongst the black-headed gulls who must have had young around. I thought of a biord of prey when it went into a steep dive in what looked like an attack mode.
