Can i get some help with ID of this warbler, taken in Al Ain
It still looks like a Clamo to me, Paul. The bird is in heavy moult - the tail is ragged, it is missing several primaries and the dark markings are caused by missing and/or displaced feathers.
thanks Mark , but this bird is much smaller than the Clamorous , here an photo with 2 birds , look at the one on the right and the left is the above photo, the left one as no making on its wings, but the Clamo, on the right as dark markings , sorry this photo, not that good, but i did have them both together , but i delete them photo's , if it is a clamo is it a young bird ??
Large size, strong bill, bluish-grey legs & short primaries - Clamorous Reed Warbler.
