1-2 are Lesser Spotted. 3-4 is something else, probably a Bonelli's Eagle.

In my opinion the first bird is Aquila species, the second - Griffon Vulture and last two - Booted Eagle

Image 2 looks like Griffon to me too, but surely you noticed its huge size compared to the other raptors you saw?

In fact, i couldn't realise their details. Because 6 raptors were flying too far away from me. Unfortunately they didn't come closer. I just took pics to determine the species of them.

I looked at the consecutive pics after your words. I attached two pics. I don't know if the birds in these pics belong to this bird. I wish it would be a Griffon Vulture:)

the last 2 pics show eagles, most probably LSE. and i think pic 2 in your first post is not good enough to be a 100% griffon, it could be a LSE with wings held like a griffon vulture.
