    Wader ID2 - Tehran, Iran

    Please help me ID these Waders. I saw them in the same place and day as the Wader ID 1. Except for Whimbrels, I guess Dunlin, Curlew SP, LS/Sanderling, or Temminck's Stint. Due to LQ of pics, I attached a series of them to make the ID easier.

    Warbler ID, Iran - Willow?

    Well, there is another low-quality out of the focused photo that I attached. I saw some chiffchaffs one day before this photo but not in the same area (not in mountains, in the plain) and for comparing I put a chiffchaff photo, too. Hope it could help
