Bonelli's Warbler song - Western v Eastern

I'm off to northern Spain for a few days next week. I've never seen Bonelli's Warbler, and I'm trying to learn the song from my Jean C Roche CD, "Bird Songs and Calls of Britain and Europe". Before it becomes ingrained in my mind, can anybody confirm for me that the song on this CD is Western and not Eastern Bonelli's, and if it is Eastern, how different is it from Western??

Thanks

The rather abrupt songs sound the same, sımılar to to the rattle, ın the Wood Warbler song. It ıs the call that seperates eastern from western.

I played a western bonellis song to an eastern here ın southern Turkey yesterday and ıt responded...so they must sound very sımılar to the bırds to!

One description that I heard some years ago is that western bonelli sounds like a phylloscopus trying to imitate a lesser whitethroat.
