    Mystery Wildfowl species Hornsea Mere, Yorks 1990s

    Some kind of whistling duck. From the flank stripes, I'm guessing Fulvous Whistling-duck.

    Correct with Crested Hawk-eagle. Pale plumage is typical of immature.

    Louisiana or Northern Waterthrush

    All Louisiana imo. First image shows contrast between colour of supercilium and underparts, as you would expect.

    Vietnam - Bonus Part - Flycatcher

    Many of the maps in the new Lynx Vietnam field guide are misleading. But mostly the other way round i.e. showing larger ranges than actually exist

    juv. shrike - Poland

    Try Googling juv Red-backed Shrike. It won't take you long to find birds with buff undertail coverts. e.g. here https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/82261130667058489/

    Bimaculated Lark

    Agreed. Looks like Calandra. You've not said where it was taken, but since you are based in Greece, let's guess that is where you took it, in which case Calandra is the default.
