Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica) has red & white spotted sub species . It's a common spring & autumn migrant & has been recorded as having bred so probably be on British list

thanks for you reply Colin it was wrong classed in a native ( British )
today at a show the Judge said it was foreign. I'm trying to get breeding confirmation in the wild in UK.

Well thats a good question ?
if we are a part of Europe then the answer would be British/european.
if we are not then Yes they would be classed as Foreign as they would be classed as a rare migrant as would the Siberian ruby throats.
As things go we dont know for sure ? if the powers that be dont know we dont stand a chance.
Blue throats are bred fairly easily they dont like there chicks being closed rung and so great care is needed.there are 3 main types, 1 with white stone 1 with red stone and 1 that has no spot at all just a completely bluethroat. the sexes are best kept apart as soon as they have finished breeding as the males usually end up killing the female, they also have a breeding plumage and so many people get caught out thinking they have a pr only to find out in the spring the female moults into a male sometimes an adult female is mistaken for a male.


Its as bad as the Pekin robins,
because they are not a native species to France trappers are employed by licence to trap and kill them but most are sold to traders across europe, but because they are breeding in the wild there is another law to protect them saying they are a native species and all Pekin robins bred in Europe need to be closed rung.

0-1 = 0 male -1 female
the first digit represents male the second represents female
and if a 3rd digit it represents unsexed
example 1-1-5 = 1 male - 1 female - 5 unsexed.

Just to clarify things the example i gave and in this order is used/recognised worldwide in any language to describe the numbers and sexes...
Also if contacting breeders in other countries always use the Latin name to be sure you are talking about the same species which is also universal.
