Question Song (Central Spain)

Hello, some days ago I recorded a bird singing with my trail camera in a river forest in Guadalajara (Central Spain). The bird is not seen during the video, but the song can be heard clearly (I believe the bird is just on the camera ). Can you identify what bird it is? Thank you.

Its hard to ID birds on trail cams because a lot of high frequency sounds are missing. I'll have a look later to see how much is missing. My 1st thought is that it might be a Wren alarming with the upper range missing.

Could also be one of the Sylvia warblers like S. melanocephala?

Pretty sure its a wren.... the sound above 6KHz is missing

Sonagram, sound file, then a normal Wren and a sound-clipped Wren, with >6Khz missing

I don't think so. The only 'Sylvias' that could come even close would be S. conspicillata and S. hortensis, but they sound much harder, faster and on a different pitch.

Agreed, Wren. And not actually 'song', as Jane says.
