Warbler ID Paderborn Germany 16 May 2020

Please help me identify this warbler. It was between Marienloh (Paderborn) and Bad Lippspringe, NRW Germany at the renaturised Lippe shortly after 6 o'clock this morning.

At first I thought it was a Blackcap, but when I got home I saw the very yellow underside...

Thanks very much for your help.

Looks like a blackcap to me. I had a little play with it to lift the shadows, and that seems to confirm it. I think the yellow tones are just reflected sunlight. There's a lot of yellow coming through in the leaves.

That's it! It was taken directly into the bright sunlight, unfortunately.

Thanks very much Malcolm
