Hippolais sp.


Just the one picture and not very good. Possibly Hippolais and may be Olivaceous but that is quite rare. The apparent lack of a supercilium rules out the Phylloscopus.


Bushes beside lagoon in wetlands natural park.

My first thought was Willow Warbler but the head shape appears wrong and the supercilium is not obvious. Melodious is usually much yellower in the breast/belly but is likely there.
Another possible option, as it appears to be in moult, is a wintering Chiffchaff, as the older ones do lose their colouring and details. They migrate north when the moult is complete.

There is some definite yellow/green in the shoulder and eyebrow. Good luck in ID!
