Unknown bird recorded on video (Central Spain) (1 Viewer)


Sergio López Martín
Hello everyone! I recorded this bird in June in Guadalajara (Spain). Although the video includes greenfinches (Chloris chloris) too, I am referring to a bird that appears fleetingly at the end of the recording. It looks like a blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla) to me, but I don't know if it is just due to the poor quality of the image.

The following link includes the video (in .avi and .mp4) and a picture where, although the unknown bird does not appear, you can see some red arrows indicating where to look for it when watching the video. The red circle indicates the place where I was able to get the best image of the bird when pausing the video.

Thanks in advance!
I can see it but it is so fast that I can't pause in the right place and even if I did I'm not sure there would be enough for an ID. I agree with Greenfinch by the water & Goldfinch singing.
