I didn't think they had so much black on the face, but I see some matches on Google. Maybe a Himalayan subspecies.

I don't think so, Liam. This one is blue and chestnut colored. It could be another chestnut bellied rock thrush as far as I think.

I think a Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros) elongating itself.
