Bill looks fairly parallel (not broad at the base), undertail coverts look long and I think there is an emargination on P6 - Blyth's reed warbler for me, but I'd await confirmation from others - that tail does look a bit square ended!

My initial reaction was Blyth's Reed too. if so, there shouldn't be an emargination on P6, although I can't see one myself.

As Andy and Graham have pointed out, I was talking nonsense - the emargination is on P3 and P4 not P6 - apologies, though I hope this helps in the future!
