Thanks!

Another: this photo is two Common Buzzards, not one Common and one Rough-legged (see my post at the end)

And ditto this photo, a pale Common.

This photo and this photo both need moving from Larus canus to Chroicocephalus ridibundus!

And this one to Larus argentatus.

A rich vein of mislabelled and misidentified photos under Phoenicurus phoenicurus . . .

These are all Phoenicurus ochruros (all labelled correctly in English, but with the wrong sci name):
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=480412
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=480411
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=479461
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=468207
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=433135
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=180503

Phoenicurus ochruros again, but misidentified rather than mislabelled:
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=195869
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=102459
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=101568
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...hp?photo=74059

Luscinia sp., probably Luscinia megarhynchos, misidentified:
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=139754
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=139753
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=139750

These (I think) are Phoenicurus ochruros rufiventris from Xinjiang, China (misidentification):
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=376686
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=376690
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=376689

And two Dunnocks Prunella modularis (misidentification):
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=379671
http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/sho...p?photo=379391

Oh, dear, Podiceps cristatus! Wonder what happened here!!

I took care of the last one. I do not have the time to go into the others at this point.

This pic is mislabelled Turdus torquatus; should be Monticola saxatilis (English name is correct).

My immediate impression was the same, but then I remembered that some Red Crossbill have white wing bars, even if they are less strong than on White-winged. So: are you absolutely sure?

Arrgh! Yes, of course I meant solitarius . . . a bad typo, thanks for spotting that!

Yes; these are broad, solid white with a clearly defined edge, and likewise on the tertials; in wingbarred Red Crossbills, the wingbars are narrow, and ill-defined, merging into the red/green of the rest of the plumage, and usually absent from the tertials.

PS still those Dunnocks and the Chinese rufiventris Black Redstart pics to do from before!

This Ivory Gull pic has a typo in the genus name "Pagophilia" instead of Pagophila, stops it getting picked up by the search.

And several (here and here and here and here and here and here) are missing the scientific name Pagophila eburnea altogether (found them by a test search for "ivory+gull", though this also gets some false hits).
