Please help me to ID these birds

all photos are for today

I think the bird that is on the right side in 2 first photo is Upcher’s warbler which Mr.Paker said befor
on the 4th & 5th photo, there is one Common Whitethroat & Upcher’s warbler - I don't have any idea for the third bird

also, there are 3 videos that I think help to ID

I agree with Upcher's Warbler and Common Whitethroat. The third bird is a Garden Warbler - note the thickish grey legs, fairly strong bill and the grey neck sides
thanks a lot

what about the other
would you please name whatever you see

For example, ( 9456,9458 )

You are right the other besides Whitethroat and Garden Warbler are Marsh Warbler. I was rather hastily focussing on the Garden Warbler. Sorry...

I was confused
Which photo or video are you talking about?

photo 9409: right side=garden, down=Whitethroat, left=upcher am I right?

photo 9405: down=???

9456,9458 - marsh ??

video 9387 - garden & upcher - is it correct?

video 9408 - same as photo 9409

There is no Upcher's in any of the photos or videos. I was wrong because I didn't really pay attention. All birds on the photos that are not Garden Warbler or Whitethroat seem to be Marsh Warbler/ one - 9399 - looks like a Reed Warbler.

In the video 9401-.... at 0:17 a Phylloscopus joins in. Looks like a Willow Warbler to me.
