Sparrowhawk Ages

First day back at school today so not much birding done again, however the resident Grey Wagtail pair provided a good yeartick. On the way home I had a couple of sightings of Sparrowhawks and it got my thinking about some of the birds I've photographed in my garden and what ages they are. I think they are as pictured above:
1) Adult female
2/3) Juvenile Female
4) Adult Male
5) Adult Male in moult?
Any opinions appreciated.
