The first bird here is an obvious michahellis, but the other 3 are more difficult. They are not particularly white-headed, they have fairly dirty underparts, and they are fairly dumpy, without a long rear attenuation. It is interesting to compare these three birds with some of the 2CY's on this page, which were photographed in Nice, France - they are very similar. The greater coverts of the fourth bird, P02000, are not typical, but possible in michahellis.
