Those are really gorgeous images of beautiful birds! May guess on #3 is a Kestrel, but I could be wrong.

What beautiful pictures!
I think Saly is probably right with the Kestrel for number 3.

This site has some good pics:

You may find that your bird books don't help with some of the birds in the sanctuary as they will not be "natives".

Cheers

I have seen them on the roads eating dead animals but they always take flight when I try to get closer, If I wait they never come back. You got some cracking shots there, bet you do a return trip in better weather.

thank you Talyllyn and Grounded, it was great fun getting up close with these magnificent birds and weather permitting i will go back there maybe this week. its only a 30 minute drive and if the sun is shining it will be worth it!
