Japanese bird


I took a pic of this bird last February in Tokyo and I'd be delighted if someone could help me find out what it is...

I am far from an Asian expert (although I am originally from that continent, I only traveled there a few times since becoming interested in birds). However, I think this one is a Daurian Redstart which I had photographed before.

Edit: female, that is, compare with the image on this page:

Thank you so much! I've just had a look at some pictures and that's definitely correct. I think I missed it because I looked at a picture of the male which has different colouring. :-)
