Warbler in Rhodes Aug 19

Saw this bird on the slopes of a mountain flying between the shrubs. My only guess, with very little experience on these , is an Olive Tree Warbler ?

The other bird is either a Chukar or Rock Partridge I believe.

Only Chukar occurs naturally iirc but there might be introductions to appease the shooting fraternity...

Hello,
I don't think this bird is a warbler.
I'd rather see a muscicapid like the Black-eared Wheatear.
it is impossible, however, to specify.
Friendly

I would guess Water Pipit for the small bird, but agree with Jean, cannot be sure on that photo.

Difficult to tell, but thin black bill is rather better for Water I guess.
