Grey Phalarope at St Brides Major

Reported on Birdguides - does anyone know any more about this?
[This sighting refers to St. Brides, Wentloog in Gwent VC35]

There's a Curlew Sandpiper reorted there today...Can only think of the pond outside the pub at the east end

Both sightings refer to St Brides, Gwent. Sort it out, Birdguides!

St Brides Gwent is St Brides Wentloog which is on the coast road east of Newport. I can't imagine where in St Brides Wentloog it would be though as at that location itself it's all roadside reens.

Ref St Brides Wentloog - this refers equally to the village AND the immediate foreshore including the now famous West Nash Lighthouse at the Usk est. where all the recent action has been - very confusing!
