I still hope for someone that can adjust the colours to a real, natural level, but I agree with all, this has to be a Common Whitethroat. What a nice pitfall picture, thanks for sharing.

Now that you mention it seems likely - a feeding adult Bicknell's Thrush 8/... Can't believe it to be a serious suggestion.

I don't think there are any spots on its throat, just wet feathers. Also even allowing for the colour saturation of the image it's got buff coloured sides and chest. The apparent light coloured outer tail feathers have also been pointed out. I agree on sylvia warbler, probably a female whitethroat.
