Please help with these
1 & 2 are the same bird
And my guess for 3 would be Richard’s Pipit
And 4 A plaintive cuckoo

Please confirm or correct me. Thanks

Although the Pipit does look quite like Richard's, it has a pronounced loral stripe, which would suggest Paddyfield, as do the short fine streaks on the crown. On the other hand the ear-coverts are quite pale and the underparts are whitish, with no rusty wash on the flanks. Neither angle is optimum though - I can't judge the length of the tail or see the hind claw properly.

Does this back view of the pipit help
