I am assuming that this was taken somewhere in Britain, judging by your own location?
I'd go for a pale Common Buzzard with this, plumage and structure would fit: some can get very...

Hi John,
This bird is a Yellow Wagtail. Note, among other features, the prominent whitish fringes and tips to the median and greater coverts and tertials, yellow limited to the vent, far greyer...

Hi Jose,
I don't know the status of the species on the Cape Verdes, but your bird is a Common Chiffchaff. Head pattern, with an obvious broken eye-ring, relatively short primary projection etc...

Hi Bruce,
Regrettably, I don't think that a firm identification to form is possible here, at least not from the sole image, but, while I share Ken's opinion that this bird doesn't look right for a...

Thanks for backing up my initial gut feeling, Lou! I looked at lots of pics of Savi's in autumn, not having seen the species much at that season, but the head pattern of the subject bird isn't...

Possibly, hence why I'd like to see another pic if possible. If that feature is real and not due to an odd angle, it would overrule any passing resemblance to a Reed Warbler. I can see the appeal,...

Hi Avi,
Not too hot on African birds, but #2 is a Yellow-billed Kite for sure, and #4-5 are some sort of small finch and not weavers, not sure what occurs out there though.
