I agree with you its a Hippolais - quite a few mails suggested (both through MEB and EBN) an acrocephalus but several went for Cetti's.
However I have a slight advantage I have seen both Upchers and Olivaceous within the last few days and spoken to Adrian about size plus have had the measuring stick out - I now think its could be a Booted Warbler cause it sure doesn't look like the others that I have been looking at both in the hand (ringing) and in the bush so to speak. The overall jizz is all wrong for either Olivaceous or Upcher's so I am going against the flow and sticking my head on the block I say Booted for this one.
