Looks like an Icterine, unless I'm missing something.

Always good to post more than one pic if you can btw, not just the 'best' one, if you can.

Agree with Larry,
most similar Melodious would show a smaller pp (difficult to judge), most have browner legs. The leg-colour of your bird here is pure dark grey with a just visible bluish tinge, therefore spot on for an ID-book Icterine.
This bird has a weak pale wing panel for an Icterine (but clearly within variation), some Melodious have a similar one.

There can't be many Welsh records.

I'd certainly have been very excited if I'd found this in the real world rather than just coming across it on here!

I didn’t pay much attention to it when I downloaded the card, it was only when I was looking through the summer pictures when I came across it. It was at Newborough Forest Anglesey.

I’ve sent an email to the county recorder at Anglesey for verification. I’ll see if anything comes back. Cheers
