Just after startup, the standby tries to read and replay the WAL files which
exist in the standby, and then if it finds invalid WAL record, IOW, it can no
longer read valid WAL record locally, it starts replication and tries to read
the WAL files from the master. So the above log message "invalid record
..." means that there is no valid WAL record in the standby, which triggers
the replication. Since valid WAL records are streamed from the master,
you don't need to worry about that log message.
