Mountain Chiffchaff? Iran

There were lots of Common Chiffchafs but two of them had different color (Brown) and widespread supercilium as you can see in photos.
Are they Phylloscopus sindianus?

Hi all,
a completely colourless chiffchaff is of interest. Suspect it would need a sepia crown and warmer buff ear coverts to be Mountain Chiffchaff. Looking at the wing-point and tail, the spiky little thorn like beak and shiny jet black legs it seems closer to Plain leaf Warbler.
