Wheatears - Issen & Agadir, Morocco

Checking back pictures taken with my old compact camera, I found two wheatears (of which I've taken four pictures) which I cannot put a name on.

I'm sure the first three ones are either Seebohm's or Northern but as the females of both species are very hard to differentiate (no idea if you can even differentiate them from these pictures), I don't know which one is which.

The last one looks like a weird winter Red-rumped and was seen at Agadir, circa 10/2017 but once again I have no idea if that looks remotely right and it is a bit of an odd place to find them.

Thank you in advance for any input. :)

Yes Common Redstart i think for the last one.
The bird in the first 2 pictures might well be a Desert Wheatear.
