Warbler call in Mallorca

Apologies for the poor sound quality, I recorded this with my phone! Iíd just seen what I thought was a Hippoalis warbler fly into a try and soon after this call started. Is it a Melodious Warbler? Thanks!

Thanks both! It didn't sound like a Blackcap to me honestly, I thought it was much faster and higher pitched and seemed to be coming from a Hippolais/Phylloscopus, but I must have got that wrong!

blackcap with a messy song in my opinion, too. when they are in an acute teritorial fight with another male or when they don't feel safe or when they haven't occupied a territory yet, they can produce various weird (sub-)songs, often interspersed with imitations. this one sounds similar to our teritorial male when another male tries to intrude.

OK, based on the second clip I'll agree with Blackcap.
