Can't contribute much more but just one thought about the seemingly yellow wash to supercilium and flanks. As Raphael already mentioned, I can imagine that at the flanks it could be a reflection of...

I'm afraid the photos don't show enough to be sure but as you say a European is of course much more likely. The seemingly large white neck patch is not a good feature as it's exposure is depending on...

It really looks very grey indeed and seemingly very short-winged. I can't help it but I have to think of Plain Leaf Warbler - though I've never seen one. Of course it's much more likely that it...

This is a playback of whatever species to chase away domestic pigeons. I've heard the very same sound last summer and asked someone about it.

To me this species is way too variable to put a single bird into a ssp. . Here in NE Germany some of the breeding birds just look like your bird. Admittedly most do look more olive though...

Looks like a classic Chiffchaff, not a tristis. They are very variable... I never figured how to separate collybita from abietinus. Is it even possible in the field?

Looks good for an Eastern Chiffchaff ssp.. Whether you could really call it a Siberian Chiffchaff I'm not sure.

Because a female Common Redstart would be warmer more brownish coloured and show a stronger contrast between lighter underside and darker back. So, Black Redstart for me too.

I can't help it the head pattern reminds me of male Baikal Teal. Could this be one of the parents - despite the seemingly large size?

The colour of the iris is really grey (would indicate a fairly young Acro) and also the plumage looks rather fresh. So, I think it is a recently fledged African Reed Warbler.
