The recording is not too good but there is no Yellow-browed Warbler here IMO. Sounds like a Chiffchaff to me practicing to call properly. The first two note sound a little like a Siskin

It's not an Acrocephalus - tail cut straight, undertail coverts too short. I see nothing why it shouldn't be Iduna opaca. Van't be too unusual in Portugal I imagine?
