Which reed warbler? Jubail, east coast, Saudi

Only one picture I'm afraid taken on Friday. 4 types of reed warbler are apparently found in this wetland at this time of year: Eurasian, clamorous, Basra and great.

My inclination is clamorous but I want to be proved wrong as I have never seen a Basra reed warbler!
