9yrs, but many years a tugger.
Think so, but perhaps a juvenile as I would expect the breast to be a little redder.

not long enough
I think chiffchaff or garden warbler , but also as above if juvenile it makes it much harder to be sure 👍

edit - just had a look on laptop and retract my first thought 🤔

second one could be a Dartford warbler 👍 or Linnet 😁

I think the first one is probably a young female chaffinch.
The second is definitely a young linnet.

(though I won't be offended if somebody tells me my "definitely" is wrong!!!)

Actually just had another look at photo 1 on my phone where I can zoom in and not at all sure about the chaffinch now.
