Scottish Warblers (Willow ?) (1 Viewer)

Dear all,
While reviewing some old photos I took in a trip a long time ago in Scotland, I came upon these three different birds which I had all called Willow Warblers.
I am now all full of doubt, and would be enormously grateful for your help.
Especially doubtfull about no 1, as I am now thinking Garden Warbler...
Also, is no 3 a young Willow ?
Many thanks in advance,
ugolino

I'm not very good with warblers, but you can safely exclude Garden Warbler on the following grounds: GW has a stockier build, in particular a more robust bill, than WW, and no green hues in the plumage.
