Rare vagrant

Third winter Ferryside March 2nd -5th (D.Davidson et al). This record has been accepted on identification by BBRC but now awaits admission to the British List by BOURC. Should this be achieved this will be the FIRST record for Wales and the same bird was previously at Gloucester when it constituted the first record for the UK. It may also be the third for the Western Palearctic for this Pacific species.
