The latin name for this bird sums it up - Sylvia Borin - The boring Garden Warbler.

Nondescript or featureless is how I would describe this warbler, pale brown upper parts and buff under parts turning greyer as it comes into breeding condition.

A clincher for me to identify  this bird is that I always feel it has a slightly pronounced lighter eye ring.

A bird that skulks deep in  vegetation but when it does appear it can be quite showy.
