Whitethroat?

Not at all sure about this but the more I look at it the more I can convince myself it is a young Whitethroat. Would suggest it is very likely one of the warblers.

Whitethroat

When I was taking these pictures, whitethroats came straight after this bird. The only reason I did not think it was whitethroat is because it hasn't got that typical scruffy/ruffled look as they usually do.
It is is a very safe guess probably.

Thank you for your help!

Juvenile

It won't have that rough look since, as Ray suggested, it is a juvenile, with much fresher, smoother plumage.
