I spotted these 6 warblers in our home garden, could you help with their ids please? The first three images are that of the same bird, the fourth and fifth are of the same bird, the sixth of a separate warbler, 7-9 of the same warbler, 10 of a single bird, 11-12 of the same warbler. The last warbler was sighted this month, the rest during March-April 2020.

Thanks very much!

1-3. Greenish Warbler, I think, although the 3rd image, showing a yellowish supercilium and a fairly strong eyestripe, makes me wonder about Green Warbler.
4-5. Blyth's Reed Warbler.
6. also Blyth's Reed.
7-9. This one I would say is Greenish.
10. Blyth's Reed again.
11-12. What was the size of the bird? It looks a bit like Clamorous Reed Warbler.

Thanks Andy. With regard to the bird in 11-12, my guesstimate is that it would be about 11 cms. The reeds are about 3.5cms apart and the pillar on which the same bird in the attached image is posed, is 30 cms in width. Hope this helps.

Looking again, the wing is too plain and the supercilium too weak after the eye, so probably another Blyth's Reed.
