The falcon looks to me like a juvenile Peregrine. The "sideburns" are much too pronounced for a Merlin, and the lengthwise streaks make it a juvenile.

I won't attempt to identify the second photo.

I posted the picture of the bird on my blog for comments. Also have a picture of what I think is a Golden Eagle, and hope to get comments there too.
