I doubt the ID could be

I doubt the ID could be confirmed from this photo as amphipods including Talitrus need really careful examination to be sure of species, but based on the location info in your other posting http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/293663 (in compost well away from an obvious freshwater or marine source), I think this ID is correct and a mild area of Wales is a likely location for this Aussie intruder.
