The 'white' line in the wing is not at the tips of the greater coverts (as it would be in the Phylloscopus you were hoping for) but (unusually so?) at the base of the secondaries. E.g. the long undertail coverts readily identify it as an Acrocephalus...

Exactly so - and I still can't figure out quite why it's giving that appearance, even after scrutinizing the pics closely. Pale secondary-fringes broader near the feather-bases? - but it doesn't look as though they are broader there. Odd.
