1-2 could be a female Green-tailed Sunbird - long decurved bill, plain grey head, coppery tones on flight feathers, white tips visible on undertake-feathers, tapering shape of tail fits. Mrs Gould's has a blunter tail and is usually more yellow on the belly.

3-5 are correct.

I meant "undertail" feathers, not "undertake". It's the overzealous autocorrect function on my laptop kicking on. It won't let me type "tertials" either! Luckily I've got my phone trained.
