    Default Mystery warbler

    Not a great photo, but one to test the skills. Won't say where - yet - but any guesses?

    Well Olivaceous is rather vague, but getting closer. Actually, this is Sahara Olivaceous Warbler of the race reiseri, seen in Morocco on 29th March - so a very new arrival; in the field it was incredibly pale and unlike elaeica in plumage - probably a bit more like Western Olivaceous in colour, but with a slightly narrow supercilium, not the beady-eyed look, smaller, slim bill and pumped its tail habitually.
