Loads of birds to ID (Mostly Norfolk) (1 Viewer)


Average Birder
So I have been looking through all my photos from the last few years and picked out the ones that I was unsure on. I identified some so have deleted them from the list but I am still unsure on quite a few. I realise there are a lot of photos so don't feel obliged to help and spend so much time helping. Here is the link - https://drive.google.com/open?id=19AViOtpO3ZfBQzgGbA5Ux9OB-rHl4l_c.

I will update this post with the numbers, what I think they are and the location. I also added a video I took in the Peak District after climbing a large hill (Kinderscout if I remember correctly). I was shocked that this was allowed in such a beautiful area and I believe the shooting rights and leased out by the National Trust! They were shooting Red Grouse and I know this is a strong topic at the moment.

01 to 08 - Various Gulls, Minsmere RSPB - Does 01 show two Caspians?
09 - Took the picture of the hare and only noticed the birds in the picture later on in the day, North Norfolk field - Wheatear/s?
10 to 14 - Various Pipits and Larks, Burnham Overy - Skylarks and Meadow Pipits?
15 to 21 - Circling quite high, Horstead (Norfolk) - Common Crane?
22 - On field near cliffs, Weybourne - Meadow Pipit?
23 - Not sure on bird or location but probably Weybourne
24 - Pensthorpe (I think) - Common Whitethroat?
25 - In scrub in the dune, Holme - Common or Lesser Whitethroat?
26 - Cley NWT (I think) - Herring and Lesser Black-Backed Gulls?
27 - In the dunes, Holme - Meadow Pipit?
28 - Cley (I think) - Herring Gull?
29 - On beach at Weybourne - Unsure on bird (bad photo)

Thanks for any help,
Louis P

Thanks, strangely enough including that bird I have had 3 White Storks in the past 5 years (over Horstead). Local aviary or good location...? Have noticed no rings on any of them including one that I saw extremely well flying quite low directly over my head.
Yes, the provenance is debatable at best.. don't envy the records committee! I think there is (or was when I lived in the county) a few feral individuals, so the odd bird gets seen along the N coast. Wasn't somebody trying to reintroduce them at Felbrigg?
I believe there are still a few feral individuals around. Haven't heard about the attempted reintroduction at Felbrigg but I am quite new to birding.

Ok, no need to know about the Pipits, I have seen ll the common ones. Just one more I want to know please - is 25 a Common or Lesser Whitethroat.

Oh wow thanks! 2 new species for my list (Yellow Legged Gull and Lesser Whitethroat) just from uploading those ones I wasn't too sure on.
