I reckon the "Fairy Gerygone" (M6) is an Inland Thornbill. The colour of the 
bird, bill and black legs suit this. The rump would give it away but it's not 
really visible in the shots. 
The "Golden-headed Cisticola" looks a lot more like a Reed Warbler, which 
incidentally aren't always in reeds. 
It is interesting that you say M31 and M32 are the same bird. For a start the 
latter looks more like an immature Golden Whistler than a Rufous, whereas M31 
looks a lot like a Robin (shape and colour of the bill, undertail colour suit a 
Robin) and the feet look a different colour to the Whistler in M32.
