Yes, a very good link but it should be pointed out that the Little Egret depicted in the link is ssp garzetta ( A vagrant in Australia ) and that it differs from our species. Two differences being Ours have Yellow loral skin and Yellow soles while garzetta has Greyish loral skin and full yellow feet.

Further to my post last night about egret identification, Steve Read has provided a link to this very helpful guide  Worth bookmarking I reckon. 

Thanks Steve and also thank you Yarden who initially provided this link in 2022.
