Warbler, not a flycatcher.
Another brown bird to discuss!! LOL
Ah, thank you. No wonder I couldn't find it in the book under "flycatcher"!
Regarding brown birds. I was greatly encouraged when I heard a renowned bird watcher on the radio call a bird a WBJ. When asked to elucidate he said "Wee brown job!"
They've always been LBJ's to me.
And the Garden warbler is the archetypal LBJ! No distinguishing marks...

I have a feeling that this is actually a lesser whitethroat rather than a garden warbler, though it is difficult to see from the photograph. It seems to have a very finely pointed beak (look beyond the debris, towards the tip), more so than a garden warbler does. There is a suggestion of a greyish head (and darker ear coverts?), and an indication of some whiteish edgings on the underneath of the outer tail feathers. Also, in overall view, the bird looks â€˜too grey' for garden warbler. However, a number of these effects (but not the beak) may relate to the position of the corpse and/or photographic effects. Any thoughts anybody?
I think that you may well be correct with this suggestion. Like you say, it really doesn't look right for Garden Warbler, but I can't see anything against it being an ex-Lesser Whitethroat. The very white underparts are another good pointer towards LW.
