"by my house" suggests window collision to me. Might be worth fitting some hawk silhouettes in the windows to make the sparrows think again about flying into them :t:

Ditto to Chaffinch; it is in a Field Maple (Acer campestre) which has smaller leaves than many other maples - that would make the bird appear larger by comparison :t:

Markedly larger than the Whitefronts they are with - wouldn't that suggest Taiga?

Many waders have quite a short period in summer plumage, often only April/May to July; by August a lot (though not all) are back into winter plumage :t:

Yep, a juvenile Red-legged Partridge, likely recently released from a game shooting estate (:storm:); young ones have duller, paler legs than adults.

Head looks pretty pale to me - that's with blowing the pics up several x original size.

B-l Kittiwake is far more likely in inshore coastal waters; Sab's generally migrate well out in the ocean. Bonaparte's would be commoner, but (like Sab's) doesn't have the blackish collar.

Agree 1st winter Black-legged Kittiwake for the gull in pics 2-3; I'd think Sabine's is unlikely there, as well as lacking the black collar that's just visible (a good 1st winter Kitti pointer :t:)
