Well I did think the bill looked thick for the tit but put this on the blurriness of the pic. But anyway with the new pics it’s clear it’s not a Dusky tit....so, juvenile Grey-headed nigrita.

I suspect the first image shows a Dusky tit and the flycatcher suggestion looks about right for the second bird.

The OP bird is indeed an Intermediate. Apart from the gape line, note the shape of the bare skin patch on the lores: it is rather wide/square as opposed to the narrower, more rectangular skin patch...

Visually it looks like a perfect tristis to me. The fact that the yellow underwing coverts contrast so sharply with the rest of the bird just shows that green/yellow pigmentation is more or less...

It’s a 2nd winter Yellow-legged gull, probably lusitanius. It’s too contrasty for a Herring and the plain grey adult type scapulars are too pale for any subspecies of Lesser black-backed gull.

The OP bird is a Scarlet-chested sunbird. You can actually just see the breast colour and the brownish wings are typical too (and not seen in Amethyst as far as I recall).
