  1. Cormorant is the bird at sea, then what looks like a meadow pipit. Fulmar id is correct, then you have another meadow pipit, a wood warbler in Aviemore, and lesser black backed gull
  2. All yellow wagtails - 1 and 3 black-headed, 2 and 4 blue-headed subspecies.
  3. Definitely Curlew Sandpipers in first shot, probably Sanderlings in next. Greenshank possibility in photo 5, and final shot is not a tern, but a gull, probably Slender-billed, with that black beak.
  4. Male Spanish sparrow confirmed - nice shot

    London Gull Help

    First bird is a sub adult Herring Gull. Nearly adult with a light mantle, but still a few immature brown feathers. Second picture is of 2 adult Lesser Black backed gulls.

    white hawk/owl in Denali National Park

    If I was in England this would be a male Hen Harrier but in the US you call it a Northern Harrier. Good photo of a cracking male.
  7. 1 is a pipit, hard to id at distance. 2 is a phylloscopus warbler - either chiffchaff or willow warbler cant tell from photo. 4 is a reed bunting.
  8. First warbler is a Chiffchaff. Black legs, small primary projection, pale supercilium. Normally identified by its chiff-chaff call, differs from similar willow warbler by leg colour and primary projection, as well as song. Bird at the feeder is another female chaffinch
  9. Female blackcap. These warblers used to be summer visitors to Northern Europe but have become more common overwinterers in recent years, with milder winters. They are also fond of visiting gardens and using bird feeders.
  10. Agree with above. A,C & D are serins. Warbler looks like Bonelli`s to me.
  11. Definitely a kestrel. Classic habitat for this roadside falcon
