Bird ID needed as well

Hi guys!

 I am working for a touroperator now, and our photographer has just come back from the Gambia. He has given me some marvellous bird pics to identify, and most I succeeded with, just these two I struggle with:

 

And now you know why my struggle, these are not the best pics of the lot, lol!

The next one I have identified as a male red-cheeked cordon blue, can anyone corfirm this?


Any help is greatly appreciated, I am so frustrated Laughing out loud

Also, during my research I found this useful website, it's Dutch but I am sure non-Dutch speakers will find it usefull too. If you click "zoeken" you can search the database using English names, Dutch names or scientific names! If anyone needs any help, just let me know.
