Small birds in Lewa, Kenya

I took these pictures 2 weeks ago in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. I need some help with identification. Thanks very much.

Number two is a Longclaw.
In Lewa are present the Yellow Throated and Pangani.
I will incline for the YT.

Number one is a weaver but im not an expert.

Me neither. However, this bird appears to have black legs, which narrows things down, so my guess would be immature Lesser Masked Weaver (which has a black eye, unlike the yellow of the adults).
