Legs of #3 are too pale for Iberian imo, but I agree PP is on the shorter side for WW; body seems quite bulky, and structurally it fits WW better to my eye.
The one that actually makes me more...

The problem here is the possibility of Iberian Chiffchaff. 2-4 are Willow Warblers imo, 5 is apparently also one (P6 is not emarginated), but I'd like to see more pics of #1.

The first looks good for juv Western Sand to me, but the 2nd is a Stilt Sand (note the very straight tip-kinked bill, and leg colour, and length of the tibia btw).

Oh, I see. But still, even as vagrants, I know of no records of such birds. Afaik only the nominal ssp has ever been recorded at least on the Portuguese mainland (I'm reasonably sure about Madeira as...

I'm positive about the age. There are a number of scapulars already moulted (visibly greyer, more uniform and longer), giving it a variegated look in such a blurred picture. The type of dark belly...
