Uncomfortably Numb.
The second bird is a sedge warbler the primary projection is too long for Moustached.
The last bird I’d suggest Upcher’s warbler,
Overall greyish upperparts, darker tail with white edge to outer tail feathers.
Tertials look good to with spacing between T1 to T2 being larger than T2 to T3.
Also whitish edging to secondaries forming a small wing panel.

Hi Yashar,

The bird I suggested may be an Upcher’s warbler is in the 10th, 11th, & 12th photos above. I can’t see this bird in the other thread you posted with the videos.
If I’ve identified the bird in question incorrectly then I apologise, as I said in the message I sent you I can only view these images on my phone.
Maybe Grahame or Roland can correctly me if I’m wrong.
