Swedish ID help please

Hi all

Could you help to ID this bird please?... seen along the edge of a meadow and a woodland, north of Stockholm. My first thought was Linnet but could it be a Redpoll or other?

I also have some very iffy pictures of a bird of prey if anyone in the know could shed some light.

Thanks in advance

Bird of prey, way in the distance. Wishful thinking?

First bird is a Redpoll sp; I would have thought Common would be the default species there/

Are the raptor photos all the same bird? Left hand photo looks like a convincing Common Buzzard.

Thanks, yes it's the same raptor.

Here are a couple of other I took recently. I think the Woodpecker is a Lesser Spotted but it flew into the abyss quite quickly. Could someone confirm?

The other, well i'm rubbish with Warblers. Chiffchaff, Wood, Willow, other? Seen in a light woodland area in Stockholm City.

Thanks in advance

1. Dark belly isolated from upper breast, why not Rough-legged which are moving right now but you know my opinion on such shots.....
