Sardinian warbler, surely? At this time of year female Subalpine should/would clearly show white eye-ring and moustache. Chin appears to be lighter than chest/belly, which supports Sardinian, rather than Subalpine group.

If you don't mind me asking; what features are you ruling in/ruling out, so I can come to the same consensus?

In such a bad photo it's difficult to point you to specific features: general colour, the eye region pattern (no real eye ring, but a pale one), proportions (including bill), the hint of a pale moustachial, etc. Sardinian is one of the most common garden birds here, I've seen and ringed thousands over decades; Subalpine also abundant inland, I've seen thousands, had hundreds in the hand.

Thank you.
