Small Brown Birds ( that go 'chick' in the undergrowth ) - the birders headache !Any ideas on this one ? Blyths Reed Warbler or Booted Warbler ? I am inclined towards Blyth's Reed Warbler.

It might be the Blyth's. The characteristics of the two I have noted down from Salim Ali's book.
Blyth's Reed Wardbler: 14 cm. White supercilium and throat. Olive brown above, buff below.
Booted Warbler: 12 cm. Pale olive brown above. Short whitish supercilium. Buffish white below.
