Orkneys 2017

Taken in July 17. The duck I assume is a mallard by the blue patch on its wing. The geese look like greylag with the full orange bill, and contrasting grey neck and lighter front ? One of the birds I am hopeful is a spotted flycatcher, but the other one, a juvenile is assume, I have no idea. It's bill shape looks a bit like a wren ? - Total guess !
