Thanks all. I thought the facial skin wasn't extending enough for Great Egrets, but Geoffrey's guide shows the intermediate is even shorter. Tricky!

They look like Eastern Great Egrets to me - facial skin extends beyond the eye, prominent neck kink.


See Geoffrey Dabb's helpful chart:


There are now 3 of them at the pond.

2 Intermediate Egrets (I think? See photos) roosting on the little islet here in Giralang Pond (or at least that is what I call it) near Dodwell Street.
