Hello, with long, broad based (round base to feathering) bill, extremly short undertail-covert, a full, but squar-cut tail with a notch, and whitish-silvery panel to secondaries, together with lack of any green/ilove and yellow tones/hues this is either one of those grey/brown and white Iduna warblers (and no Icterine): Olive-Tree, Upchers or an EOW.
Surely, others jump in and help us

Than thank you Richard,
this bird doesnt strike me of a RBR to me, but I am not massivly experienced with this and havent seen the mentioned Iduna warblers.

Face pattern in the first photo is spot on for RBR, in the second image one can see that there is a nice orangey colour lurking in that closed tail!

Olive-tree and Upcher's are both Hippolais.

Thanks to Grahame, Andy and all. I just realized that I made a mistake again: commenting on a bird, where I dont have personal experience, it just looked like an Iduna/Hippolais warbler to me. And I have very little knowledge of those taxonomic issues, although I should!

I don’t believe you were mistaken Alex you were in the right ballpark.
