(Warblers?) in Agadir, Morocco

Howdy! A few IDs I wanted to check on. These birds were seen in Paradise Valley, a rocky montaine area with some water flowing through it. Seen a couple days ago. My best guesses are below:

1) Sardinian Warbler

2) Willow Warbler

Difficult to be sure of the first one, but yes Chiffchaff.

I reckon Sardinian Warbler and Chiffchaff but see if others suggest differently !

That was near Essaouira, not Agadir (add Frank Zappa, Cat Stevens and others to the local folklore)

Agreed Simon but i thought the ‘in’ place was Paradise Valley - maybe there is a 2 valley theory

I once saw the missing bloke from the manics in Goa, it was in a haze rather than a valley though......

I bought a Shergar Burger in Dublin many years ago and purchased a copy of the Big Issue off Lord Lucan in Stourbridge only last week
