Nice entry. Very informative and to the point. However, one small thing I couldn't help noticing:

>>As the bluethroat shares part of its scientific name, Luscinia, with the nightingale Luscinia megarhynchos, this clearly makes it more closely related to the nightingale than to the robin.<<

I think it is not the name that makes it more related to the nightingale but rather that it is an indication that it is more related. The name is simply something that is given to it. If you get my point.

Oh, smiley - laugh if you knew the discussions, almost arguments I had with one certain Researcher (are you reading this 'teach' smiley - biggrin) over the bluethroats name, and whether it was related to the robin, or the nightingale. So I sort of included both. smiley - biggrin
