Cute. And the species? I’m no expert, but with my trusty Collins Bird Guide at my side I would guess a warbler of some sort - maybe a Chiffchaff.

It definitely looks like a warbler. I also looked it up and was thinking willow warbler or chiffchaff. The primaries are shortish compared to tertials and the legs are dark which leans towards chiffchaff probably I think. Maybe. It looks like there are a lot of little brown warblers with similar supercilium/eye line in Europe that make IDs hard.

It appears that IDing small brown European warblers is either a nightmare or a wonderful puzzle, depending on your tenacity and degree of OCD:
