Hello,
fiirst is a Reed Warbler, please note strong, nearly all pale bill and full,rounded tail. I see now Great Reeed Warbler here (should show strong supercilium, darker lores and darker, stronger legs) and no Locustella with olive tinge and unmarked plumage and long,straight wings.
Second and third, if different, bird is a Chiffchaff with blackish legs and blackish bill, short pp and olive-greenish upperparts and good head-pattern,including a narrow distinct eye-ring.

Edit: I think its to early for a Marsh Warbler ,even in Turkey?

1 surely not a great reed warbler but very likely a common reed warbler (bill structure, head pattern, general proportions, primary projection). a few weeks ago? would be quite an early date even for turkey. but much more so for great reed w.!

What a difference a "w" makes. If you change the word now to no (didnt noticed that), then my comment regarding the first bird makes sense, and a Great Reed Warbler can be excluded by the points mentioned.

Thanks Lou and pat for mentioning this!
Question: can a Marsh Warbler be elimanated by this picture. I couldnt, but I would like to learn, if someone is willing to take this challenge.

Are there more pictures of the first bird? Where in Turkey was it? It's an Acrocephalus no doubt but the wings look rather short IMO...
