1, 2 and 4 look good to me, 3 looks more like Brown-headed Gulls and a Slender-billed Gull (yellow bill), 4 Eurasian Teal
 
3) Black-headed Gulls?
Red ticks: Brown-headed
Yellow + : Black-headed
Bird with head ringed in blue - think this might be an immature Slender-billed, note the pale eye, slender bill, and lack of a cheek spot :t:


Do you have a larger size original you could post?


Edit: cross-posted with Degu while editing pic!

So nice of you. :) Thanks
 
Nutcracker, the two birds you've marked with a yellow "plus" sign are surely Slender-billed. The juvenile could also be Slender-billed, although it has a pale eye.

I agree with degu that no. 4 is a female Eurasian Teal, not a Mallard.

I'd assumed Black-h, from the dark eye - but it's true the pale eye on Slender-b can be hard to see, particularly with this pic small and out of focus. You're probably right :t:
