Svarthätta - Sylvia atricapilla - Blackcap

 The male is singing and he looks a bit peculiar below his bill. Something to do with sound maybe.

I had the pleasure of meeting with this couple a month ago. I rarely see them and especially both at the same time. The male was singing and made quite a display. The female was more shy and stayed high up in the birch.
