Phylloscopus warbler Zhejiang, China (photo and song) (1 Viewer)

I've seen a number of these Phylloscopus warblers in an urban park in trees near water in Zhejiang province China. They look evenly pale underneath and, compared to my reference point of willow warblers and chiffchaffs, quite stocky. The photo is not great but hopefully the song will allow ID. There are probably two individuals singing in the recording. Listening to songs online I wondered if it is two-barred warbler.

Thanks. There have certainly been plenty of Pallas's warblers around but I also saw some without crown stripe. I thought it was the no-crown-stripe-birds singing but it seems I was mistaken. Pallas's always have a crown stripe don't they?
Shame, Pallas's was the only Phylloscopus I'd already convincingly ID'ed here. Back to the drawing board. Nice birds though...
