    It doesn't look right for lesser whitethroat. I suspect it's a garden warbler, particularly if it was singing because it's not right for a male whitethroat.

      I agree, it's a Garden Warbler Sylvia borin. Both whitethroats have more contrast in plumage, this is dull grey with paler grey below. You could confuse this maybe with an Olivaceous Warbler Hippolais pallida, but that has less rounded head and long, dagger bill.

      Thanks for sharing!
