I must admit, Greenish wasn’t my first reaction here but then nor was Booted - I was thinking is it a Chiffchaff type of phylosc with a strangely robust bill?! - I then noticed the flared super behind the eye and green in the coverts - then reading Graham’s post with the ID, it all made sense!

Greenish Warbler in active pre-breeding moult.

A-h-h 😮...Initially I did note the green tints (but still being in Acro/Hippolais mode from the previous thread) I put the green tints down to photo artefact. Funnily enough, I found a Greenish a few years back now on Blakeney Point...but that came with the requisite “wing bar”.

Even if you feel you have an id by now or not, please remember that location and timing would be really helpful for those answering! Current guidelines state that the location should be in the thread title.
