LW losses over Warsaw IX 1939?

Losses in Warsaw

In September 1939, Luftwafffe made ​​a series of flights over Warsaw, the Polish capital. In the first period, the city boasted a strong defense defenses. After September 6, 1939, the number of anti-aircraft guns greatly diminished.
As a result of anti-aircraft fire over the city have been destroyed at least eight aircraft Luftwaffe (damage greater than 60 %). Can anyone add information about losses reconnaissance aviation, aircraft auxiliary, which may have been shot down by Polish A/A (flak) from 1 to 27 September 1939?

Known Luftwaffe losses incurred as a result of firing anti-aircraft fire on Warsaw in September 1939.

1 09/09/39 - 1 Me 109 E and 1 Arado Ar 66 I./JG 76
2 10/09/ - 1 He 111, 9(K)/LG 1 shot down during a night raid on Warsaw
3 11/09/ - 1 He 111J of Westa 1 (meteorological reconnaissance unit) shot down before noon. 11.00)
4 09/21/ - 1 Do 17Z of Stabst./KG 2 - heavily damaged by A/A artillery. Written after his return from the Warsaw on its own airport.
5 25/09/ - 2 Ju 52 IV. / KGzbV dropping incendiary bombs on the city, and one Ju 87 IV(St.) / LG 1

I do not mean downing over the city as a result of actions Polish fighters from 1 to 6 September 1939. It is quite another matter. I mean the losses caused by anti-aircraft fire
