I am assuming that the orange is actually pink. When combined with yellow this 
is a common mistake.  This would make it a Seaham (Hunter Valley) Cattle Egret. 
 Max Maddock will know the banding details - I've been "out of egrets" for a 
couple of years now.

Because of the demise of this project, and my departure, Seaham is the only 
colony where Cattle Egrets are now being tagged.  This is down from the 
thirteen colonies we used to work in from Newcastle to Bundaberg.  The only 
other egret project in eastern Australia that I'm aware of is that on 
Intermediate Egrets in the Macquarie Marshes.
