Two More Warnsdorf Closed Tours

Here are two more closed tours formed according to the Warnsdorf rule, with minimum of seven cells where there is an alternative route. In these tours there is no choice on the first move given the initial placement of the knight at d1.
These tours are not as symmetric as the previous example and differ from each other only in the choice of routes from f5. Other choices at e4 lead to open tours. This is part of work in progress. I've not yet enumerated all the solutions with 6 ambiguities, but have reached 540 incomplete paths with 5 ambiguous points.
