Dear Paul,
First, welcome to the site! Are you traveling around, or based in Kyrgyzstan?
In these photos, I see a rock bunting. The lack of a black throat (I see hint of pale on photo 2 and 3), the rufous lower breast/belly (not pale) and some streaking on the back eliminate the white-capped bunting.
