Common Chiffchaffs don't usually turn up down here in the Summer - usually gone by April. Could they be Iberian Chiffchaffs?

Algarve warblers

Three warblers all taken today near Lagos in the Algarve. Could all be Willow Warblers but seem to be a few subtle differences. Would appreciate confirmation/correction

Algarve gulls

Admittedly I'm rubbish on gulls and this is not a great pic, but was intrigued by the different leg colours and wing patterns underneath so I thought I'd post for the gull experts out there.

Algerve Raptors

Thinking Marsh harrier for the first, maybe Short Toed Eagle for the second. Neither photo is great but appreciate any views. Cheers.

Thanks to all for the comments. Particularly those which advise on timings when certain species are around in the Algarve during the year. Anybody know a good website/blog that is helpful for this?

Algarve Wader

Apologies for the quality - taken from a distance via Digiscope.

Was thinking this is a Greenshank, but the bill looks a bit straight. Any ideas?

Thanks - I think Zitting Cisticola is a good call - I know they are present in Alvor. Moustached Warblers are rare in the Algarve I think.

Another Algarve wader

Trying to firm up a few "not sures" in my photo folder. This one was taken 10th December at Alvor estuary. My conclusion was Dunlin but looking for advice.
