Odd bird at Mumbles

Thought I'd post this here, from the GBC sightings.
"An unusual starling has been visiting our bird feeders. It has pale buff underparts with darker brown back and wings. No spots. Its legs are flesh coloured and its beak is yellow at the base. Both its legs and beak seem slightly thicker than those of normal starlings. Could it be a Rose-Coloured Starling?"
I'll see if I can get the lady's details [Margaret Green] so someone can maybe check it out.
...Thanks John. For details of where to view this bird see Glamorgan Birds website, Barry
