Vienna, Austria. Small selection without an ID

So lucky me I'm still stuck here unable to go home (or travel) therefore the local woods are getting a real workout (new bins arrived today) !

Since I'm not a 'European birder' per se I'm not conversant with many of the birds here (I didn't bird in the UK during my youth) and I'm relying on the Internet for IDs (books are all back in country of residence - China).

Calls/Song are particularly tough.

These are all from the past week or so and in woodland in Northern Vienna or from Donau Park.

Probably easy for most here

1. Female Redstart ?
2. Reed Warbler - but which one ?
3. Sylvia ?
4. LBJ - found in bushes in woodland. Brown above and light below. There were two and this one was giving the 'begging' wing flutter (fledgling?) which attracted the 'parent" ? Unfortunately I missed the shot at 8m when it popped up - this a very heavy crop from 50m !
5. Wood Warbler ?
6. See 2nd post below.
7. Sound Recording A : 2nd post below.
8. Sound Recording B : 2nd post below.
9. Sound Recording C : 2nd post below.

Thanks !
Kevin

6. Seems like a different Reed Warbler to the one above?

You're very welcome to have a go at these too ! If they are common birds it will save me time looking for them when heard.

Awesome - thanks ! I hadn't considered Kestrel because I was in deep woods (though a field was not far away), I did get some shots of one close by in a tall tree, now I think of it (and there are LOTS of Kestrels here).

Oriole is very interesting because I was wondering where to find them here - hopefully my newly arrived bins will help :)

Nice video distinguishing Chiffchaffs from Willow Warblers if, like me, there is any difficulty :
