Your name for the Blue-tail is probably more accurate, apparently a lot of animals were named before the "invention" of the colour orange, hence why we over here have Red Squirrel, Red Fox, Red Kite, and the sort of colloquial name Robin red-breast. So it probably should be Orange-flanked Bluetail :)
