I observed a small group of these birds in an area of shrubs that had been grubbed out during the day. I'm concerned about the development, and would appreciate any help in identifying the bird. The following day Whitethroat were reported in the vicinity, but the shape of head looks wrong for that.

Apologies for the low quality images, it was in late evening light, and straining at the limits of my lens.
