      It looks more like a great white heron to me.

      not a cattle egret. It looks to be a little egret, although that seems a somewhat odd choice for a tropical house.

      Thanks for posting that, according to the signs it was a Little Egret, and I've just made a mistake when uploading, so I will edit to Little Egret, but what do others think on the species?

      EDIT: Me and Chli seem to have posted at the same time, and yes an odd choice.

      as in Egretta alba? They have yellow bills and no head plume.

      My mistake. Little egret was my first thought, but it didn't look quite right - rather too thin and crest rather too long - but that might just be the pose. I don't know why I thought great white, as I know other egrets are available, so I should have checked :eek:
