Acrocephalus Warbler from northern Pakistan (1 Viewer)

During last few days I spotted a number of reed-warblers at Borit Lake (36°26'7" N 74°51'40" E), in northern Pakistan. A majority of these Acrocephalus Warbler appear to be Blyth's Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus dumetorum), but I can see some variation among the individuals. Here I want to post a number of images to confirm the identification. This first set of 5 images show smaller birds which are surely Blyth's, but I may be wrong.

These 2 birds might also be Blyth, but something seems unusual.

All in #1&2 look like Blyth's Reed indeed. In #3 all birds have strong grey legs and comparativly short wings, so Clamorous Reed.
